About the Adventure Barn

BF Adventure operates year round and demand is increasing across all service provision, fully inclusive facilities do not exist within the county.

What we would like to do is replace the existing marquee with a purpose built ‘Adventure barn’ (24m x 18m) to accommodate:

  • Five-a-side football and multi-ball sports pitch
  • A varied and accessible climbing and boulder wall
  • Giant swing, crate stack activity and high rope challenge course.
  • Renewables – Photovoltaic solar panels and Rainwater harvesting

This will be used all year round for:

  • Up to 4000 Young People of whom 500 are severely/multiply disadvantaged/disabled
  • All client groups
  • Fully accessible for Disabled clients
  • Available for community use

Our Sponsors so far


We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has supported this project so far, however we are still in need of funds to complete the build to the specification we need and to install all the activity elements.

Please help us complete the facility and make is as versatile and accessible as possible, we need donations or discounts for the follow materials:



You can also donate direct to the project, all sponsors will get their name on the supporters board and for phase 2 of the climbing wall project you can sponsor a climbing hold and have it named after you – £100 per hold

If  you would like to individually sponsor the ‘high elements’ these cost between £1,000 – £2,000 and can be called after you or your business eg ‘The John Smith Leap of Faith’ or ‘Jane Dear Walk of Peril’
