Keeping the whole family entertained

Free Entry to Westbridge Park for accompanied under 16s!


We’ve got some exciting new additions to the Little Foodies’ Zone this year – the circus big top will be back with circus skills fun and shows, as will the funfair rides. This year, however, youngsters will be able to get hands-on and try milking a ‘cow’, before designing and whipping up their own milkshake

NEW for 2021!  The Milkshake Shack

Build your own mega-milkshake from fresh, locally produced milk, decorate a cookie to take home and eat and enter a colouring competition for the chance to win a great prize!

Parents from Oulton First School PTFA are running the stall, with local farmer Tom Smith from Smith’s Milk Churn in Yarlet kindly donating milk; so all proceeds can go toward raising much-needed funds for the school.

P.S. If you love the delicious, fresh milk you can pick up a regular supply direct from Tom’s farm – open daily 7am – 7pm.

Cost: Pay per milkshake/activity

Milk a cow with the NFU

Little ones can learn where their milk comes from and try their hand at hand milking *** the cow (don’t worry, she’s not real).

Cost: Included in your (free!) Westbridge Park entry

Panic Circus! Big Top

Back by popular demand, Professor Panic and his team will entertain the crowds in their traditional ‘Big Top’ throughout Festival Saturday & Sunday with puppet shows, circus workshops, clown shows and giant bubble fun!

Cost: Included in your (free!) Westbridge Park entry

Crazy golf & Fairground rides

Pay-per round inflatable crazy golf for competitive family fun, plus inflatable slides to help kids burn off some energy.

Cost: Pay per go
