How to get a Breezecard

Click to expandIs everything free?

While all the inflatables and the activities in the tents are free there is a fairground zone and refreshment stalls 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.

Click to expandWhat's on at Breeze on Tour

We split the event up into 6 different zones: Art, Challenge, Info, Performance, Play and Sport. We try to offer something for everyone no matter if you are 3 or 17. Within some of the zones with inflatables there are height restrictions, please read about them below.

You can find out about what will be available in each zone by clicking the link below.

What's on at Breeze on Tour

Click to expandHeight Restrictions

We try and offer activities for all ages from 0 to 19. There is a Play Zone 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.

Accessibility at Breeze on Tour

Click to expandWill there be a Breeze event near me?

Breeze on Tour events are planned in large parks strategically across the city. A lot of thought and planning goes into their locations, from suitability at the venue to access, to enable as many people to come from across Leeds. This year we have moved some of our locations to allow young people who did not attend last year to come this year.
 
Mini Breeze events are funded by localities themselves, usually through Community Committees. Therefore we work with those areas who commission us to find the most suitable venue.
 
Sadly not all areas commission Breeze events so we are sorry if we didn't make it to where you live, keep an eye out on the website as new dates go up right up to the start of the summer holidays.
