A festival of summer fun for families
The National Forest Adventure Farm is launching a seven-week festival of family fun this summer called Farmarama. This unique event brings a vibrant festival feel to the farm which will run alongside the attraction’s popular activities which includes the return of its traditional maize maze and a brand new Secret Garden themed adventure golf course.
From 16th July to 5th September the Burton upon Trent family farm attraction will be unveiling the new Farmarama area which offers a festival feel each day, festooned in flags and bunting, including princess singalongs shows, an interactive pirate show, teacup rides, a craft marque, mascot meet and greets, and glitter face painting.
If that wasn’t enough, at 4pm each day children will be able to enjoy a fun-filled foam party full of frothy bubbles and music in front of the Farmarama stage.
Also new for 2022 is the Secret Garden Adventure Golf, a 9-hole course which has a garden theme complete with wooden pagodas, water features and a running stream.
Tom Robinson, who runs the farm attraction with his brother Ivor, said:
“We’re excited about putting on our new Farmarama event which brings a host of new activities to the farm for seven weeks, for some much-needed affordable family-fun time. With family festivals becoming so popular we thought we’d introduce our piece of festival magic to the farm with lots of activities designed especially for families and younger children. Value for money is becoming increasingly important to people so we’ve ensured that all our farm and summer activities are included in the price of the ticket price. We can’t wait for people to join us for what will be an action-packed day out in the countryside.”Tom Robinson
It will be the 19th time the farm has held a summer event since first starting the maize maze in 2004. The annual maze is planted each year in May and in recent years high-tech satellite drilling technique means the design can be planted directly into the ground rather than the paths being cut out as the plants grow.
By the middle of August of the summer the maize towers up to 2.4m/8ft tall.
Look out for the exciting reveal of this year’s maize maze design in July.
Entrance to Farmarama event also includes all of the usual farm favourites such as the recently renovated Animal Barn, the indoor soft play and huge outdoor adventure area including pedal Go-Karts, Jurassic Canyon sand fossil dig, tractor rides, giant jumping pillows and JCB Big Dig Zone.
Farmarama will be held every day from Saturday 16th July to Monday 5th September.
Tickets are £15.99 for children and adults and can be booked online.
