Activities, Events & Workshops:


Watch the wood carving demonstration and see their creations come to life, have a go at spinning a plate at the circus stand, you can even make your own skipping rope and have a skip off with your friends! See who reaches the top first on the climbing wall or enjoy a more sedate donkey ride. 

Meet the Animals .....

There will be plenty of opportunities to meet a variety of animals including rare breed farm animals, newly hatched chicks, a dairy cow and calf plus some more exotic creatures and bugs. There will also be arena displays including birds of prey, gun dogs, beagles and even the chance to race against a ferret! 

Make & Bake .....

From mixing ice cream to having a go at making the perfect sausage, there will be lots of opportunities for the younger ones to get hands on and learn where their food comes from and how it’s made.

Get Creative .....

Willow weaving, felting, and puppet making are just a few of the crafty activities the family can get involved with. Why not roll a wax candle whilst learning more about Bees or ‘cut and stick’ to make an Easter bonnet to take home.

Be Entertained .....

Mr Bloom will be the highlight of the day, however there will be lots more fun shows to watch on the stage as well as a chance to meet the Easter Bunny. There will also be interactive storytelling and new for 2018 ………. a fabulous puppet show. Face painters will be on hand to turn the little ones into their favourite character.
