Wednesday 4th August: Middle Farm Sports Day

Sports Day at Middle Farm

Our fun-packed sports day promises to be great fun for the entire family. We’ve got traditional sports day races, an agility obstacle course, a sports quiz with sweets for those who compete!

Meet and greets and feedings are running too, and our famous hay play barn and outdoor playground are open all day.

You’ll also have the chance to sit in a tractor (parents – get the cameras at the ready), enjoy craft events for when you need a little rest and attempt a spot of painting in the barn (if raining).
