Are you ready to have the time of your life this weekend?

The Sun Slider is heading to the city – an incredible 1,000ft, three-lane inflatable water slide.

That’s right, this slide is the size of three full-size football pitches. I mean, just imagine that for a moment, if you can – sliding 1,000ft...

The slide is just one small part of the Sheffield Slip and Slide Fest being hosted by Love Sheffield, at Graves Park on Hemsworth Road this Saturday. The event is guaranteed fun for all the family, suitable for children aged six and over, and their sisters, brothers, mums, and dads.

The event will feature DJs, foam cannons, mist cannons, water soakers, platform free fall airbags, Childrens mini slides, glitter painting, British Army assault course, British Army Paintball range, British Army Climbing wall, charity stalls and entertainment. Not forgetting that life-changing slide!

There will also be mini-water slides which are free to use for children aged three to five years. This one- day only event will run from 10am to 6pm, and tickets are available by visiting thesunslider.co.uk

Part of all ticket sales will be donated to BlueBell Woods Childrens Hospice.

n Also coming up in the city, you can expect a bright and noisy experience at Museums Sheffield, as they launch the Children’s Media Conference Playground.

Featuring immersive video, creative play, interactive games, hands-on experiments, and a digitally enhanced swing, all exploring the theme of music and response, the playground is open to all, is free, and wheelchair accessible.

The exhibition has been curated for children aged five to 12 and everyone is welcome to drop in anytime, from 10am to 5pm, when the playground launches, from Tuesday, July 3 to Saturday, July 7.

There will also be a Quiet Hour, running on Saturday from 10am to 11am, when children with sensory requirements, who find sound overwhelming, can experience the exhibition, with decreased volume levels and lowered lighting.

Visit cmcplayground.com for details.

n And finally, don’t miss out on the last of the June fun at Endcliffe Park this Saturday, when Park Fun will be running once again – for the final time. There will be three hours of free children’s sports activities, from 11am to 2pm, including Archery Tag and Bubble Football, challenging children to test their aim and co-ordination through lots of team games.
