We have a fantastic line up of live music so find a seat, grab something yummy to eat and drink and enjoy the day! What a great way to spend a lovely Sunday with family and friends.


‘Kids in the Kitchen’ is a fun and interactive cooking session. Your children will love this opportunity to be a 'chef' and prepare a tasty & nutritious recipe that they will then get to enjoy eating.  Dressed in their own bright and colourful chef hat and apron they will really feel like a chef for the session! This is a free activity for children of all ages. Sessions are held throughout the day.
