Down on Eyes Meadow there is eight hours of enjoyment and entertainment waiting for you along with friends and family. There are Circus Skills to particiapte in and the biggest bubbles you have seen from the Bubbleman, or you could have a go at Archery. There will be a good selection of stalls to interest you (and not just a string of tombolas) with local Groups like the Scouts providing activities for you to try. Bring your “best friend” along and enter them in the Dog Show.
If you want to just sit and watch, in the arena… Vision Dance will be displaying their grace and rhythm. Less graceful but all the more entertaining for that will be grunting and muscle straining as teams battle it out in the Tug of War competition. For sheer athleticism you will be hard put to beat Pedal Power versus Parkourwhere BMX riders vye with gymnasts to race around obstacles, don’t try this at home! And when all that is done, we will stage the “Egg Catching” competition.
Elsewhere on the Meadow there will be displays of classic cars and vintage tractors. Ever been in a Hovercraft, No? then take a ride with Axceler -8 hovercrafts. More conventional rides will be on offer from the mini fairground and on Mike’s Donkeys.
