Many activities are aimed for the family so everything can enjoy the day. Gates open at 11:00am.

The Dick Danger Show should have a public health warning attached to it! How can one man be so stupid? Dick hasn’t a clue but he is prepared to find out how close to physical injury he can get without actually hurting himself.

A comic circus style show involving a oral B toothbrush, dad dancing in very tight trousers and Dick’s signature trick, diving from a very high pole into a bucket of (mineral) water. Not to forget the outrageously skilful pole-dancing! Expect to feel really sensible after seeing this show.

The ever-popular Professor Baubles Punch & Judy Show will return, with several performances throughout the afternoon, to delight young audiences and old!

Zoot will be around the park with on his stilts or a unicycle.

Amazing StephenAmazing Stephen (Pictured right)Magician of the Year 2018, will no doubt keep the crowds entertained with his award winning show.
