Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon glow trail

Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon glow trail

Details

Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon glow trails are landing in a forest near you!
Join us this autumn to take part in our exciting new activity glow trails featuring Shaun the Sheep to celebrate his new film 'A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon'. An alien space ship has crashed into Forestry England’s Mossingham Forest and Shaun is on a mission to help the inhabitant – a lovable alien called Lu-La.

Lu-La needs your help to charge her communicator so she can call home for rescue. You'll need to hurry, as Lu-La is being chased by Agent Red and her hapless helpers the Hazmats!

We'll be launching an out-of-this-world app and you'll have the chance to explore exciting new trails across the country.

Aliens at Dalby Forest as Shaun the Sheep character lands!
For the very first time in history, Forestry England has confirmed that an alien has crash landed in the forest. Lu-La, from the Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, in UK cinemas 18 October, is an impish and adorable alien with amazing powers. She has been stranded in the forest and needs to charge her communicator so that she can get a message back home to call for rescue!

Forestry England’s Dalby Forest is inviting families from early October to help Shaun the Sheep with his mission to get Lu-La home before a sinister organisation can capture her. The new free game is supported by Sport England using funding raised by National Lottery players and hopes to encourage around 500,000 visits from families getting active across 21 Forestry England sites countrywide.

In a race against time, children helping Shaun the Sheep will need to search for UV puzzles along the self-led Glow Trail with a UV light pen-torch.

Children will need to solve the puzzles they find on the trail with the free Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail app or activity sheet to start charging the communicator. Mini challenges along the trail such as how many trees you can touch in 25 seconds and how many steps you can run on the spot in 20 seconds to escape the Hazmats will further charge the communicator and help Lu-La get home.

Once all of the puzzles and challenges have been completed, the app will present an augmented reality hidden spaceship where families can have their picture taken.

A Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail kit will be available to buy on site and includes a UV pen-torch, Shaun the Sheep ears, a clue sheet, an activity booklet, a sticker sheet and a pencil to make note of your answers!

The new self-led trail which has been supported by Sport England is a fantastic way to get families active with lots of fun challenges to get you moving along the way. Baa-rilliant for children aged 6–12, families will love the challenge of helping Shaun to get Lu-La home and beat Agent Red and the Hazmats.

The clue hunt app is free from www.forestryengland.uk/shaunthesheep and will need to be downloaded before your visit.

Launch dates differ between forests and are yet to be announced – for further details please visit www.forestryengland.uk/shaunthesheep
