This summer, we're bringing Gympanzees to you!

We’re going on the road and bringing some of the magic Gympanzees fun and support that you’ve come to love, in a way that is Covid safe and easily accessible. You can book your session below. 

What can I expect at the Roadshows?

Play and exercise sessions for children and young people (0-25) with sensory, physical, learning difficulties, SEN and any other mild to profound disability.

Each day of our Roadshow will be split into sessions that will be suited to different needs – allowing us to tailor the equipment, guidance and support to you and your child.  Please see the timetable below and explore our different sessions on offer.

At each venue we will have a range of adapted, sensory, accessible, and fun equipment. It will be a mix of gym equipment, soft play, sensory equipment, swings and hammocks, lights and vibration toys.  Each Roadshow will have 1 or 2 rooms with mixed equipment with a dedicated calm sensory room and a much needed café area* for you to catch up with other friends and families. 

All locations will have parking. Weston, Newport and Bath all have on site parking. Barton Hill and St Anne’s (Bristol locations) have a car park with a short walk on the pavement to reception. All venues will have changing places and there will also be hoists throughout each venue. 

Most of the equipment used at the Roadshow will be available to loan from our free Lending Library after the event. 

*There is no café at Barton Hill, Bristol.

Due to the uncertainty around COVID restrictions and needing to plan our Pop Ups months in advance, we were unable to put a definite plan in place for our Summer Pop. Therefore, the 2021 Summer Pop Up is cancelled.

The sessions are 90 minutes apart from Butterfly sessions which are 2 hours (to allow for the extra time needed for hoisting and toileting). 

Whilst we will be happy to lend a hand, make some adaptations to the space and show you how equipment works, we cannot get involved with the moving and handling or supervision of your group. We need to keep an eye on the whole space and so can’t spend too much time with one family. We would be grateful if you can bring enough people to make your visit work for you all, especially if you are bringing siblings. 

All our staff will be strictly following the updated government guidelines.  This may impact the level of contact we are able to have with your children and families.

There will be small on-site food and drink facilities.  

Volunteering

Yes! We rely on support from our wonderful volunteers! Numbers will be limited this year due to covid restrictions but to apply to be a volunteer, email fran@gympanzees.org. 

Parking

All locations will have parking. Weston, Newport and Bath all have on site parking. Barton Hill and St Anne’s (Bristol locations) have a car park with a short walk on the pavement to reception.
