Schools challenge

Led by ex-Blue Peter gardener, Chris Collins, children and young people from local schools, colleges and groups are creating gardens based on the theme of ‘Bring your favourite book to life’.

Participants demonstrate their creative skills by devising imaginative and original garden designs. Come along and see if you can guess the books that have inspired their designs. 

Outdoor activities

There is plenty going on for those that love the outdoors. Why not sit and relax while the children enjoy playing giant garden games and croquet?

  • Oakey Bear invites you to give ‘willow weaving’ a go to create an array of large scale bespoke sculptures based on characters from well-known story books.
  • Thomas Trilby provides his own unique international circus entertainment. Watch his stilt bike riding and juggling skills or join one of his exciting circus workshops on Saturday or Sunday.
  • Visit the Worcestershire Beekeepers with live bees and learn about looking after them.
