Fun on the Farm for all the family

Festival on the Farm is back!

Festival on the farm is now in its third year. The festival invites you to a creative family adventure into the great outdoors and wonderful wilderness. Festival on the Farm is being held on Saturday 26 July at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. Choose to wander into the woodland survival camp to learn bush crafts such as shelter and fire building or visit the festival menagerie of birds, bees, bugs and much more!

Step inside the pages of a book and let the stories unfold, quite literally before your eyes with storytelling and theatre by Highly Sprung Performance Co

Pif Paf Theatre presents Bee Guides Bombus and Borage who have left the Hive with the Bee Cart, their exciting mobile world of interaction, information and fun exploring all things Bees and Pollination.

And for grown-ups there’s plenty to do. Treat yourself to original art work or handmade crafts at the arts and crafts fair in the Chapel or kick back on a straw sofa and listen to mellow music. Enjoy delectable treats at the local food market, get pedalling the smoothie bike to make your very own refreshing drink or take part in a raw food workshop for a wholesome snack courtesy of The Nectar Cafe. 

Get advice on how to grow your own fruit, vegetable or herb gardens from the Breckland Master Gardeners. Take a walk with the festival Food Forager to learn about the wild food that is out there and for the little ones, learn how to grow your own with the Organix Explore Tour.

The Gruffalo is back too! Children are invited to a Gruffalo Feast to make scrambled snake pasta salad, gruffalo crumble and purple prickled juice. There will be storytelling, followed by lunch then eaten in the company of the Gruffalo. Tickets are strictly limited for the feast and can be purchased on the day for £4 per child.

There will be plenty of things for the whole family to see and do,  for more details see www.festivalonthefarm.com

Tickets and prices

Family tickets are priced at £29 for two adults and two children. Other ticket options are available.

Festival on the Farm is proud to announce that once the entrance fee is paid, activities are then free! The one exception is the new addition to the festival this year, the Gruffalo Feast which costs an additional £4 per child.

    Oh this looks lovely Sarah! If it wasn’t a 5 hour drive from me I’d be there like a shot.
    Enjoy it! x

      I love that it’s an all inclusive price (well apart from the Gruffalo Feast) sometimes you go to these things and end up having to pay extra for crafts and activities

    Wow – this looks fantastic! Wish I’d known about this before, but OH is away this weekend and there’s no way I can juggle both kids on my own. Might have to pin it to remember to look out for dates next year.

    This looks brilliant. I really could use a bit of advise of my fruit growing this year. Had some disasters! Lovely post 🙂
