There’s lots for the kids to do!

We think that a proper British Summer Day out wouldn’t be complete without the kids running around having fun so we’ve tried to make sure that there’ll be plenty of things to amuse them throughout the day. There’ll be lots of activities and inflatables (weather dependent) and of course, they can dance all day long to all the great live music & enjoy eating all of the tasty treats from our exhibitors!!!
