Fairy Foraging

Monday 15th April, 10:30 am - 3:00 pm.

Fairy Foraging

There are 2 bookable sessions;

  • 10.30 am to 12.00 pm &
  • 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm

The kingdom’s fairy dust has all gone missing and our fairy in training desperately needs to make some more but doesn’t have the right ingredients.  Help the fairy find the ingredients she needs to complete her spell to make more dairy dust.  They’re hidden behind magical fairy doors that can be found in the garden and wooded areas of the site.

There will also be fairy related crafts in the barn after each session.

This event is suitable for children who are walking up to about 7/8 years of age. Parents need to accompany the child and can bring additional children in buggies if they wish.

Fairy Dress up is optional.

Cost: £3.50 per child (all children must be accompanied by an Adult)

Pre booking essential: Tickets are available on site from the Ticket Office during normal opening times (Thursday to Sunday 10.30 am to 4.30 pm), or by calling 01455 290429 (Open 7 days a week from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm)
