FREE Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail

Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail

The Shaun the Sheep Glow Trail is a self-guided trail around a number of Forests in England.

The premise: An alien space ship has crashed into the forest and Shaun the Sheep is on a mission to help the alien inhabitant (named Lu-La). 

Join Forestry England this autumn and take part in their exciting new activity glow trails featuring Shaun the Sheep to celebrate his new film A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon.

AD | I have been or could be if you click on a link in this post compensated via a cash payment, gift or something else of value for writing this post. See our full disclosure policy and privacy policy for more details.

Download the FREE app, and use it to complete challenges and solve UV puzzles in the forest to help Lu-La out. At the end, you’ll unlock an augmented reality photo of Shaun and Lu-La as they appear before your eyes.

TOP TIP: Download the app before you go to the forest – signal can be (VERY) patchy in the forest.

Where are the Shaun the Sheep Trails?

Escape Agent Red and the Hazmats who are hot on your tail! Follow discreet signs and use the UV pen-torch from your activity pack to reveal hidden clues and puzzles in the forest! Solve these puzzles in the app to help Lu-La charge her communicator to help her get back home.

Please download the app before arriving, and get your pack from the café or Visitor Centre before setting off on the trail. Trails are opening from October, you can find details of all the trails here, including when they start, but the list of places confirmed to have trails so far are:

  • Alice Holt
  • Beechenhurst
  • Cannock Chase
  • Cardinham Woods
  • Dalby Forest

What is in the Glow Trail Activity Pack? 

Whilst the trail itself and the app are FREE, you can purchase a Farmageddon Glow Trail Pack from the Forests Visitor Centre/Cafe on site during normal opening hours. The pack costs £3.50 and includes:

  • A UV pen for solving clues around the forest 
  • Activity book
  • Shaun ears to wear 
  • Stickers 
  • Pencil
  • Clue sheet 
  • & more….. 

When we’ve done these before (we did the Gruffalo Spotting) I would suggest at £3.50 you buy one pack per child to save arguments. 

The Glow Trail App 

The Glow Trail App is FREE to download from the Google Play or App Store. Download the app at home before you leave. The app features 8 puzzles to interact with, 8 physical challenges to complete and lots of special effects and fun as you move around the forest.
