Part of Summer Holidays
A weekend of animal and country craft magic at Mary Arden's Farm.
21-22 July 2012
Mary Arden's Farm
In the run up to the summer holidays and our six weeks of Summer Madness, join us on the farm for a celebration of our animals and the skills of Tudor rural workers.
Cheer on our goats in the Goat Grand National and admire the Pony Parade and falconry demonstrations. Watch as the blacksmith demonstrates his expertise, see the young shepherd trials and observe candle-making and wood-working as it would have been in Shakespeare's time. Look out for the occasional sword fight too!
Wander through our craft and local produce market and soak up the atmosphere all set to the backdrop of country music and dance.
Welcome new additions to Mary Arden's Farm, with our new mini-farm, including Shetland ponies, Kune Kune piglets, rabbits, guinea pigs and Golden Guernsey kids.
And your ticket lets you come back for free for 12 months from date of purchase so you can visit the farm throughout the summer holidays with a different activity each week!
