Mini Breeze is a mini version of Breeze on Tour (so suitable for ages 0 — 19 years), hosted in smaller parks for local communities, with inflatables, arts crafts and a media workshop bus which are all free, plus refreshments stalls and some fairground rides which you will need money for if you want to use them. These are funded by the communities themselves, usually through Community Committees.
For fast track entry don't forget your BreezeCard — otherwise join the queue and sign up on the gate!
We may be running a Mini Breeze near to where you live check our website here breezeleeds.org/AboutBreeze/Pages/Breeze-on-Tour.aspx
or on our facebook page for where we'll be popping up!
Mini Breeze is suitable for all young people aged 0 to 19 years.
PLEASE NOTE: No dogs are allowed (except assistance dogs) at Breeze on Tour or Mini Breeze.
Breeze events are free to all 0 to 19 year olds and their families, however you do need a Breezecard!
The fastest way to get into Breeze on Tour and avoid the big queues is to make sure you bring your Breezecard with you. If you don't already have one or have lost yours you can apply for one here breezeleeds.org/AboutBreeze/Pages/Breezecard.aspx
and collect it at a sport centre or library.
If you cannot sign up for a Breezecard before the event you can on the gate but be prepared to queue!
Is everything free?
While all the inflatables and the activities in the tents are free there are some refeshment stalls (and sometimes fairground rides at Mini Breeze) which you will need some money for if you want to use them. We try our best to put these sections together should you wish to avoid them.
We try and offer activities for all ages from 0 to 19. There is a Play Zone at Breeze on Tour for under 5s and a variety of workshops to suit all the older age ranges.
We have height restrictions on some of our inflatables (see below) and some other activities for safety reasons, these are to keep your children and other children safe. Our inflatable equipment comes with guidelines within which we can be flexible to some degree by matching the heights, not ages, of those going on the equipment. We have large, prominent height boards on entry and dotted around the site, explaining the heights and zones to inform families of the zones and to ensure they do not waste time queuing for inflatables catering for a different height.
At busy times there will be always be some queues and we try to manage these as well as we can, including introducing other activities and sporting activities with parents.
We colour co-ordinate our Zones for the inflatables as follows:
GREEN FLAGS — Tot Breezers – under 1m (age 3* and under)
RED FLAGS — Family Breezers – 1m+ (age 4+*) please note in this zone at times staff will make a judgement on height ranges participating at the same time on some of the inflatables
BLUE FLAGS — Big Breezers 1.2m+ (age 8+*) — BLUE FLAGS
Hangar – over 132cm (age 9+*)
Heights are worked out from the 50th percentile of age ranges (average height for ages).
*Ages are approximate.
All activities checked and suitable for heights outlined in our risk assessments.
How accessible is it
All Breeze events are run on large flat grassed areas, accessible to wheelchair users. All Breeze on Tour events offer disabled parking and disabled toilets. All Breeze on Tour events are for any children and young people aged from 0 up to 19 years.
