Daily entertainment is on offer in the Show Barn with a spectacular line up of magic and illusions. There is a magic show and an amazingly colourful UV puppet show.

Visitors can pet an alpaca at Lightwater Valley.

The Petting Farm will also welcome visitors with lots of cute and cuddly animals for visitors to pet and feed, including rabbits, lambs, donkeys, calves, alpacas and pygmy goats.

There is a prehistoric party with the chance to meet Jester and Jasmine, Lightwater Valley’s resident dinosaur duo, and take on the Jurassic Adventure golf course.

The indoor soft play and cafe can help under-8s to run off some energy while the grown-ups sit down to a coffee. There are also places to buy lunch.

Due to the popularity of this event tickets must be pre-booked online. Payment on the day is not available. Pre-bookings must be made by midnight on the day before.
