This September we are celebrating the Fun Festival!

Merlin’s Magic Wand has brought fun into the lives of over 280,000 seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children and their families with magical days out at Merlin attractions.

“Words cannot express what today has meant to both of us. It's hard sometimes to see smiles from my boy, but today I have had more than I could count.”

We are celebrating with the Fun Festival – a month long event to show the world and thousands of children the fun and magic of Merlin! By working with local groups and charities, every single Merlin attraction will create an exciting and magical experience for children who deserve the opportunity to have fun!

There is a visit or outreach activity taking place every day in September and we have kicked things off at SEA LIFE Königswinter today.

The team at SEA LIFE Königswinter spent the morning at the palliative care unit for children at the Universitätsklinikum Köln. They spoke to the children about the creatures at SEA LIFE and handed out presents and toys. The children loved the cuddly penguin toys and had a great morning!
