You can take part in various activities which will be happening across the park along with photo opportunities with our themed characters. we will be hosting a static Falconry display, sporting activities and Magical Mayhem will be demonstrating balloon artistry and magic show. our allotments team will be hosting their finals, and allotment holders will be showing their flowers, produce and some of their scarecrows. All these acts will complement our beautiful Victorian park and show our recent refurbishments to the parks gardens, pavilion, and boat house.
