Springtime Live returns to the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate, on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May. Now in its fourth year, the event will run from 9am to 4.30pm and due to the growing popularity of the event tickets will only be available in advance.
Back by popular demand is Mr Bloom from CBeebies and this year he will be accompanied by a bunch of fellow gardeners from the allotment, along with their musical instruments to entertain the tiddlers!
New for this year will be a Show trail which can be followed by children, collecting stamps for their Springtime Live passport, by successfully completing activities in each area, while the revamped Wool Story will be hosted by two panto dame style woolly ladies with costumes inspired and made from wool.
For those who have a fascination for the sky at night, then a visit to Astrocampus, the cosmodome is a must, to spot the constellations and planets, or feed the imagination with interactive story telling.
Other new activities include stonework demonstration, mini beast craft and stick man building, as well as textile arts and farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, alpacas and pigs.
Of course it wouldn’t be Springtime Live without the old favourites; chocolate making with York Chocolate Story, bread, sausage and rope making, a Punch and Judy show, donkey rides, soft play areas and outdoor activities.
