Foodie Fun Zone

There will be lots going on all over the festival with foodie fun for all the family in our Foodie Fun Zone...

Inside The Forum you can enjoy foodie games from the lovely people at Orchard Toys, including giant floormat games, activity sheets and lots more. We’ll also have our popular face painter, Lucy, on hand to transform and transfix little - and larger - people (there is a small charge for the face painting only).

We are thrilled to be joined by the British Science Association who are asking, why do some things taste great and other things taste nasty? Why gives food its flavour? Why do chillies burn your mouth? There’s the opportunity for hands-on experiments and demonstrations as we all learn about taste and flavour.

Outside there will be the opportunity to ‘Splat Dad’ in everyone’s favourite game of wet sponges + dad’s face = Best Father’s Day Ever!

There will also be the chance for little – and, again, larger – people to get up close and personal with some of the latest state-of-the-art tractors, kindly loaned to us by Ben Burgess.
