Details

This May half term holiday will go with a bang that the National Forest Adventure Farm. The fantastic Mad Science team will be at the Farm putting on spectacular shows designed to amaze and entertain. There’s plenty more going on too! Cheer on your favourite in the fast-paced Sheep Races. Watch the sheep getting their summer haircuts in the Sheep Shearing demos and get wet, very wet, in the Water Splash-Out. Don’t forget you can meet and feed the farm animals, take a tractor and trailer ride and play in our huge indoor and outdoor play areas.
