Reaseheath College’s Family Festival is yet again gearing up to be one of the best value days out in Cheshire.

The action-packed festival, to be held on the college’s Nantwich campus next Sunday, May 19, will offer hundreds of activities and displays which appeal to all ages.

Headline acts this year include the world’s leading display falconer Jonathan Marshall, returning to the Family Festival by popular demand, who will thrill spectators with a new display featuring birds of prey and a stunning black stallion.

Families will be able to admire an authentic model of a WW2 Mark 1X Spitfire, which was purpose built for a museum and has been painstakingly restored, and enjoy cookery demonstrations by celebrity chef Sean Wilson, a former Coronation Street actor who is now a multi award cheesemaker and one of the most highly respected cheese experts in the country.

Visiting dogs will be able to make a splash at a specially designed pool provided by K9 Aqua Sports while will be able to ‘have a go’ themselves at activities run by staff and students ranging from tree climbing and a forest school to brick laying and operating a digger. Other highlights include a calf show, horse riding and polo displays, tours of the college zoo and food processing halls, a fun dog show and musical acts on the main lawn.

Opportunities for refreshments range from vintage teas to locally produced products and ice creams. Car parking is free.

Festival organiser Stephanie Owen said: “We have tried to build on our Family Festival year upon year so that it offers real value to our local community. It has become a not-to-be-missed event for many families and we are looking forward to welcoming our visitors for what promises to be a fabulous day out.”
