FFD4

Join us on 23rd September from 11:00 - 16:00 for our new super dooper Country Fayre at Church Knowle Rehoming and Visitor Centre for a day full of fun for the whole family, while raising money for rescue animals.

We have some super value Family tickets

Adults £4 / Children £2.50 (up to 12 years old) 

Family Tickets: 

£10 up to 2 adults and 3 children
£12 up to 2 adults and 5 children

Through the day we have animal introductions, where you can meet some of the characters we have here at Church Knowle and find out a little more about them and how to look after them.

Take a Hobby Horse and canter around our agility course in the sand school  to win a rosette, you can choose your steed with our top trump cards, (such fun!)   Or, you could search through Chickenham Palace to find the eggs and win a prize.  Make a cat toy, or maybe play the rabbit game, there really is so much to do.

The very best of Dorset will be on offer from local crafts to the finest produce. There will be plenty of things to do, stalls to visit and refreshments to indulge in as you while away the time seated on the hay bales, as you watch the displays in our main ring. There will also be activities on offer for your four-legged friends so, bring them along too! 

Why not take part in our Scarecrow competition? Make and dress your very own scarecrow to bring along on the day and enter into the competition. There's also a jam making and photography competition to take part in too.
