Wild Outdoors Day

from 11am to 5pm

Fair at the farmCome and join us for a great day out at the farm for all the family. There will be lots of fun things to do with an outdoors/nature theme including nature activities, outdoor cooking, fabulous live music, bar, Farmer Tim’s BBQ and stalls, including the popular WHCF plant stall.

Cost: £3 adults / £1 children

No need to book – just turn up on the day! We open at 11am.

With the numbers of Wild Outdoors revellers expected, we’ll be serving all The City Farm Café food in compostable Vegware containers rather than crockery, and would like to encourage everybody to bring reusable food and drink containers by offering 10% off any The City Farm Café item sold in your own container.
