Summer Fair Fun!

The preparation is underway for the Summer Fair to be held this Sunday (24th) 10am-4pm. There will be a Farmers’ Market and Craft Fair alongside an array of other activities for the whole family!

As well as a large variety of stalls in the vibrant farmers’ market and craft fair, there will be a chance to try fishing on the River Tern, take a donkey ride, see the sights of Fordhall on a tractor ride and learn how to dance around the maypole to some authentic folk music.

Simon Airey with his exotic pets

Simon Airey will be here with his exotic animals and not too far away Hawks on Walks will be showing their birds of prey. Kaleidoscope theatre will be entertaining with their amazing mime performances, there will be lots of games and races to take part in and of course there is always the annual Welly Wanging competition – how far can you wang your welly?

Sack Race!

The brand new Fordhall Farm catering trailers will be out serving mouth-watering hog roast and burgers and for those who prefer something sweet the Fordhall tea and cake stall will have delicious home-made cakes for sale too.

Donkey Rides

Folk music

We have a brilliant team of staff and volunteers helping to make this event a great success, they are doing everything from manning the car park to baking cakes!

Any funds raised will be recycled back into our education programme, giving more children the chance to learn about food and farming!
