Everything you need to know about Big Bounce @ Bon Accord 2022!

Returning to the city’s heart for the first time since 2019, Big Bounce @ Bon Accord will see giant inflatables fill the city centre. The event runs from 11 – 14 August and is open from 10am – 5pm.

There will be over 20 inflatables for all ages to enjoy including bouncy castles, bungee runs, obstacle courses and entertainment. All money raised will be donated to Charlie House and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

In 2019, Big Bounce @ Bon Accord saw over 20,000 visitors, raising a total of £21,500 for charity. Team Bon Accord has high hopes to significantly increase these numbers from the bigger 2022 event.

Bon Accord’s Centre Manager, Craig Stevenson said, “We look forward to bringing a bigger and better Big Bounce to the City Centre and hopefully see lots of smiling faces enjoying the fun.

We are delighted to announce that all costs of the event have been covered by Bon Accord with support from Aberdeen Inspired. Every £1 spent on tickets at Big Bounce will go directly to the fantastic causes.”

Charlie House is Bon Accord’s charity partner. The charity supports babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families, in the North East of Scotland. Initiatives to raise awareness and support the local organisation are seen throughout Bon Accord, including Curated Aberdeen, ReCharge, Car Raffle in partnership with Rotary Clubs and Santa’s Workshop.

Susan Crighton, Director of Fundraising at Charlie House said, “Charlie House is over the moon to be involved in 2022’s Big Bounce @ Bon Accord. Our team and volunteers cannot wait to meet and greet the people of Aberdeen for a fun-filled weekend.

Our partnership with Bon Accord is an essential part of raising vital funds and awareness of our charity. We are so grateful to the team at Bon Accord for the opportunity to be involved in yet another amazing initiative that will allow us to continue our vital work with families in the North East of Scotland.”

This year, Aberdeen Inspired is supporting Big Bounce, helping make the event bigger and better than ever before.

Adrian Watson, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Inspired said, “We are delighted to be working with Bon Accord to support the Big Bounce this summer.

“It is a fantastic way to have fun whilst also raising much-needed funds for Charlie House & Great Ormond Street Hospital and we hope everyone will bring their family and friends along to enjoy Big Bounce together and, in turn, raise money for fantastic cause.

“This is a great event for our city centre, and we encourage everyone to enjoy our amazing retailers, restaurants, bars and cafes while they are visiting”
