Jubilee Party Day!


It’s time to party….

To wrap up an extended fabulous bank holiday of celebratory events, it’s time to enjoy a Jubilee Party Day with something for everyone!

Starting off with super children’s entertainer Barney Baloney, there’s a late morning Jubilee Comedy and Magic Show!


This will be followed by The Ireland Colliery Chesterfield Brass Band carrying out TWO afternoon, spine-tingling, musical performances to enjoy and perhaps even jig along to!

In a nod to Her Majesty’s love for the equine life, the afternoon will also see our Jubilee Horse Parade, showcasing some of our lovely British breed horse friends looking their best, from Softie Shetlands right up to our Stunning Shires.

There’ll be Jubilee crafts* for the little ones to get involved in our Ark building and of course, if that wasn’t enough, there’s all the animal fun of the farm park including sheep racing, small animal handling and more! 👑

Park open 10:00-5:00
