Mother Shipton’s wins the Yorkshire Family Favourites award for ‘Best Event at an Attraction’. The competition was run by Day Out With The Kids, a go to resource for family days out in the UK.

20,000 real families voted for their favourite attractions in the awards. The event which clinched the title for Mother Shipton’s was the 2018 Peter Rabbit Easter Adventure, a trail through the historic woodland bringing Beatrix Potters characters to life. Highlights included Mr McGregor’s Garden, a giant Jemima Puddle-Duck, and the chance to meet Peter Rabbit himself.

The Easter event is just one of many throughout the year at Mother Shipton’s, with a different theme each school holiday. 2018 saw the introduction of the attractions first ever Christmas Experience.

Fiona Martin, director, said “this fantastic award provides recognition for the dedication and hard work of the team at Mother Shipton’s. Since purchasing the park in 2011 and introducing the events, they have continued to improve year on year. The introduction of a Christmas event builds on this and provides another exciting experience for families.”
