Variety Great Days Out

Two million children have been on Great Days Out with Variety.

Our day trips offer memorable experiences for children and young people who may otherwise not have the chance to go on a special outing.

Each year we take thousands of children on days out to one of our themed parties, the seaside, the circus, the theatre, the zoo, a theme park or other attractions around the UK.

Variety Great Days Out are open to schools and non-profit organisations all over the UK that work with disabled and disadvantaged children and young people aged 18 and under. Whether you’re an SEN school or unit, PRU, mainstream school, youth club or community group there is something for you!

If you come on one of our Great Days Out, you will be responsible for supervising your children and young people as well as making your own transport arrangements, but Variety will take care of the rest. All our Great Days Out are accessible and designed with fun in mind. They’re often educational too and enable children to develop their social skills in a safe and inclusive environment.
