CHILDREN’S AREA

The Children’s Area this year is going to be packed full of fun, exciting activities for people of all ages – and everything is free!

This year we are very pleased to welcome Chris Beardshaw and David Hatfield – they will be running children’s planting sessions. Come along and learn all about planting. All children who take part get a free plant to take home with them.

We have our favourite musical genius – Mr. Boom, joining us all the way from the Moon, who will be bringing his unique and wonderful style of musical entertainment – will you be part of his band? Malcolm Malan will be amazing everyone with his magic, and watch out for Jack the Jester and his show.

  • Animals from Walford College
  • Chickens and ducks from Chucks N Ducks
  • Little Rascals Disco Dome and soft play area

Commonwealth Flag Challenge

To celebrate the Commonwealth Games that were held this year, we are running a flag challenge!

There are 53 countries in the Commonwealth, all with their own flag, but don’t worry – we have only picked 10 flags to use! All you have to do is find them and name the country using the key in the programme.

Entry forms can be collected and dropped off in the Secretary’s Tent and the Children’s Area. All correct entries will be entered into a draw to win two adult tickets (with free entry for under 15s) to next year’s show.
