One of our most favourite events in the year down at Garden Needs Salford is the Gruffalo Walk. We love running this fun event and the children and families that get involved have a great time.

The start point for each Guffalo walk is Garden Needs Salford, our beautiful and tranquil garden centre that is a hidden oasis next to a woodland walk. The next event will be taking place on Sunday 26th July. Why not bring some Gruffalo magic in to the lives of your little ones!


26th July 2015

We have two time slots available for booking, 1pm or 2.30pm.

What do we do on the Gruffalo Walk? 

All of the children taking part are transformed into little mice and then we go off hunting for the Gruffalo led by our fabulous storyteller.

Along the way we will find the fox, the owl and the snake hidden amongst the gnarly old trees on our twisted path through the deep dark wood.  The real Gruffalo will then emerge from behind a tree to the delight of all our little mice. Astounding!

This great walk is followed by Gruffalo Crumble and refreshments in the café allowing parents to have a look at our lovely plants on offer for sale.

If we’re lucky The Gruffalo’s Child story will then be read aloud as we form a circle around our very own fire circle with marshmallows to toast!  Sound good?  Book soon as this fills up really quick!

How much does it cost?

Our Gruffalo walk costs just £10 per family.
