A day of discovery and entertainment takes place at Reaseheath College’s annual Family Festival this May.

This popular family-friendly event promises to be a fun-filled day for all ages, highlighting the Nantwich-based college’s diverse offerings and celebrating the local community.

On Sunday, May 12th visitors can explore the beautiful college campus and take part in a wide variety of activities, including hands-on workshops where they can try bricklaying, tree climbing, stock judging, flower arranging, and much more.

A whole host of lively entertainment has been lined up for this year’s festival with the return of the ever-popular Magical Musical Bike and the Bwyellwyr Clwyd Axemen.

New for 2024 is a puppet show walkabout with Rex the over-controlling bicycle sheep dog who attempts to round up the wayward Barbara and Bernard, two eight-foot Yarndale sheep with minds of their own.

Those of a daring disposition can enjoy a range of entertaining displays hosted by Reaseheath Equestrian Centre – including Freddy Steel and the Spectacle of Equitation – or gear themselves up for the breathtaking stunt work of the BMX Show riders.

There will also be a chance to browse the Farmers’ Market, indulge in the delicious delicacies on the Street Food stands, and enjoy a visit to Reaseheath Zoo, which is home to around 200 species.

Family Festival organiser Stephanie Owen said: “We’re excited to welcome families back to Reaseheath College for a fun-filled day of discovery and entertainment. With activities for all ages, from hands-on workshops to thrilling displays, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore the college, celebrate the local community, and create lasting memories.

“This year’s festival promises something for everyone, with the return of old favourites and exciting new additions like the hilarious puppet show walkabout. Our Family Festival is a wonderful way to learn about Reaseheath College and Reaseheath University Centre’s diverse offerings while enjoying a fun day out with the family.”
