Alongside this, we’ve developed an innovative calendar of seasonal events, such as our Easter Egg-stravaganza, Halloween Pumpkin Festival, and our most successful event, Winter Wonderland. A Family Festival just seemed like a natural next step for us!”

Janine, Co-Owner and wife to Marco, adds “ We have a high proportion of loyal families who attend the park and our seasonal events across the year. Parents feel safe to let their children run free here, have some outdoor fun and freedom, as well as make some very special memories together. School holidays are an expensive time for families so we wanted to create a value event, where families can linger all day long as well as experience something unique; their first live music event together !”
