Synod Big Day Out

Synod Big Day Out 2024 – bookings now open!

Buy your tickets here  

Following the success of  the last Synod Big Day out at Hollycombe Steam in the country, we have booked the site again for our exclusive use on Saturday 4 May 2024, 10am – 5pm.  There will be more steam rides open this year and additional programme activities provided by Wessex Synod.

We invite all churches, church user groups and community groups with links to URCs and LEPs in Wessex Synod to come and enjoy a day of fellowship, fun and worship. 

Ticket prices are the same as in 2022 – £8 per adult, £5 per child for up to 10 rides on the attractions. 

New this year are tickets for unlimited rides on the attractions:  adult £10.50 and child £7.50

A free ticket can be booked for an accompanying carer.

Hollycombe’s fabulous new café will be open this time and there will be other food and refreshment outlets.  You are welcome to bring your own picnic. 

We have listened to feedback and so this time the layout for the Synod activities will be more central and accessible for all.  Synod activites include a large marquee with worship, stories and entertainment, as well as a marketplace with crafts, Synod Youth Executive, and church connections, forest church and a nature walk.
