Ukulele band

Dog Olympics, what is that? I hear you ask..... well it is much like a novelty dog show with a bit more added 'fun'. With the option to enter the egg and spoon race to who can eat the fastest biscuit including you and your dog! 


Wheelbarrow Racing will be in the main ring and we will invite on lookers to get involved, with a goodie bag for the winner it can get very compeitive.. We are inviting visitors to decorate a wheelbarrow of their own, which you can drop off before the event to the centre and then use for the race - get in touch to arrange 01929 480474 (all wheelbarrows need to be collected by Wednesday 25th Sept) 

Allsorted Choir have been busy practising for their performance in the main ring, not only do they sing beautifully they also sign as the sing! We are so pleased the group are joining us. 


Welly Throwing will be kicking off in our main ring. A goodie bag for who ever throws their welly the furthest! We will be measuring the distance so you can proudly let everyone know just how far your welly has been thrown. 

Country Fayre

Liberty's Birds Of Prey will have onlookers 'ooo' and 'ahhing' as they perform in the main ring. You really don't want to miss this display as you not only get to see these beautiful birds in action but the team will be giving an education talk as well.
