Kingston Maurward’s Summer Open Day and Food Fair on Sunday 24th June is set to be the biggest and best yet with fun for the whole family!
Last year’s fun-filled event attracted over 10,000 people and centres around the stunning 18th Century Mansion House and its 750 acre estate, terrace, lake and gardens.
This year will celebrate 100 years of the formal gardens – stroll through the rolling lawns and past sumptuous flowerbeds to the Pimm’s tent, food terrace and cider bar; or for family fun go to the Animal Park for circus skills, bouncy castle, soft play area and even Guinea pig fishing!
Enjoy live music – including the fabulous winners from the recent Facebook competition to find new local talent – plus birds of prey, pony rides and tractor driving; browse trade stands, buy local produce from Dorset producers and watch student demonstrations.
See the stunning work the Floristry students have produced for their circus themed fashion extravaganzas at 2.30pm and 3.30pm on the Main House terrace.
Dog shows will take place throughout the day – everything from Dashing Dog to Golden oldie, and Playful Puppy to Waggiest Tail – there’s something for all shapes and sizes! Registration closes 30 minutes before each class and places are limited to twenty dogs in each, so get in early!
For school leavers the Open Day is a great opportunity to find out all about the College too – there’s still time to apply for full-time courses starting this September – speak to expert tutors on the day about how you can start your career in the great outdoors.
For the perfect day out for all the family get down to the Kingston Maurward Open Day – entry is free for everyone and doors are open from 10am until 5pm for the ultimate summer fun in the sun!
