We offer a variety of competitions and games to entertain the whole family, along with music from Midnite Blu. We’ve also got two bouncy castles and a children’s area . Refreshments are available all afternoon including sandwiches and delicious cakes (including gluten-free). Plus, we have many stalls selling gifts, books, bric-a-brac and a great raffle.
Entry is just £4 for adults and £2 for children payable on arrival, with a discount upon presentation of your membership or sponsorship card, if relevant.
