FUNTOPIA will be returning to Ellesmere next month for the second time this year

The children's event will be hosted in Beech Grove Recreation Ground in Ellesmere on Thursday, July 16 after having been held on May, 22.

The park will be open from 11am until 5pm and people can turn up on the day rather than pre-book.

A spokesperson for Funtopia said: "Our fun-filled festival is packed with bouncy castles, obstacle course, inflatable slide, bungee run, human wrecking ball, inflata-bull, nerf wars, driving school, circus skills, sumo suits, giant games, space hopper races, crafty corner and more, all included in the price of your wristband.

"We even have an amazing under fives area for our mini guests, filled with bouncy castles, soft play, ball pool, ride on's, giant piano mats and more.

"Funtopia is designed especially for younger visitors and we encourage all grown ups to play too.

"Visitors can enjoy unlimited play on the activities and inflatables as many times as they like during their stay.

"Ellesmere Football Club will be offering a selection of mouth watering meals, along with a fully stocked bar for the grown-ups to quench their thirst in the British summer weather.

"Don't forget to treat those at home as you wander around our artisan and trade stalls which have a selection of unique products for sale.

"For those wanting to extend the fun, why not have a go on our pay-per-go rides and games."
