Fantastic Family Fun
‘An amazing event for families with children of all ages.’
There’s no better classroom or adventure playground than the great outdoors. Around every corner, you’ll find activities for children of all ages. Your explorers will be able to climb trees, snuggle guinea pigs, pet pigs, splash in canoes and more. You can witness some of nature’s spectacles, get absorbed in stories, chat to the Countryfile stars, make crafts, and learn new skills – anyone for archery? And for rumbling tums, there’ll be more ice cream and cake (as well as wholesome grub) than you could have dreamed of.
