Events at the Farm

Farm Fest 2024

Saturday 31st August 2024

After the huge success of Farm Fest last year in honour of our 45th Anniversary we are bringing it back again for 2024!

It has been a tough start to the year for us with rising running costs and a large bill to fix a major electrical problem so Farm Fest 2024 will be a fundraising event!

There will be a small entrance fee for this event. We will have all sorts of activities and games included in your visit, as well as live music throughout the day. There will also be pay as you play games for those who want to try their hand at winning a prize or two!

Join us for games, crafts, tombola, live music, face painting and lots more!

Tickets: £2 for adults (16 & over), £1 for children aged 5-15, free for those 4 and under.
