Plus, children under 6 accompanying weekend ticket holders can come along for free. Please request Under 6 tickets at time of booking.

There will be plenty to keep little ones entertained as Play Mosaic provide fun activities and toys in the afternoon. There will be arts and crafts, fresh playdough, water play, sand play, a baby zone, giant Jenga, swingball, ball run, bubbles and more.

On Saturday at 7pm Kettle Of Fish Circus Cabaret offer a fantastic international line-up. Witness the skill and beauty of some of Europe’s finest aerialists, acrobats and jugglers, all in the capable hands of magician and compere Christian Lee.

The audience can stay for the free fire show, which takes place afterwards in the grounds of The Hawth.
