    Sparkle Bright Summer

    Welcome to the Sparkle Bright Summer at Tumblestone Hollow this August. The giant Sparkle Bright flowers are set to bloom at Tumblestone Hollow just in time. Tumblestone Hollow will be looking spectacular with lots going on including story telling, bubbles and our Tumblestone-themed temporary transfers.

    Enjoy delicious food and refreshments including mouth watering wood fired pizzas made by our Italian pizzaiolo, soft serve gelato ice cream from Bologna and hand blended American style milk shakes.

    Tickets to the Sparkle Bright Summer must be purchased in advance.  Tickets are timed and allow access to the Tumblestone Hollow Adventure Playground and Stonor Gardens.

    If you have never been to Tumblestone Hollow then welcome to their mysterious World which has been hiding in plain site, right under our noses for many millennia. Throughout this time, the people who live there have been quietly going about their business, keeping the standing stones safe, that surround their magical home.

    Finally, after more than 552 and a half years of careful negotiation between the Stonor family and the people of Tumblestone Hollow, they have agreed to let us all in to their wonderful world.

    It’s a place of laughter and light, shadow and sunshine, peace and tranquility and most of all, it’s a place to play with friends, with family young and old, and most importantly a beautiful, magical place to play together.

    They’ll ask you to photograph the chalk artwork when you’ve finished and e-mail them the pictures of the chalk artwork, letting them know the age of the participant (when filling you details on payment).

    The prizes will be City Arts Gift Vouchers for children (to 12 years old), teen (13 to 17 years old) and adult (18 +) categories.

    Date: Chalkfest 2022 is on 8 August 2022 – pay your competition entry either cash or card on the day up to 4pm

    Competition results will be published on their Facebook page on week commencing 22 August 2022. The images will be judged by their chairman and artist Diana Pattenden. The judge decision is final.
