Fairhaven Garden Green Festival

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, South Walsham is staging its annual Green Festival on Sunday, June 24, 10am to 5pm. An action-packed day of entertainment and fun environmental activities is on offer in this beautiful Broadland garden. Normal entry charges apply on the day: adult £5.50, concessions £5 and child £3 (under 5 free).

Meet Baloo the alpaca, the festival’s mascot and go on the alpaca amble with the Burnt Fen alpaca herd. Children will enjoy the yurt village play area in the woods with circus skills, Punch & Judy, recycled crafts and face painting. The Greenword Storytellers will be telling the tale of The Enchanted Sleep in Fairhaven’s new willow enclosure, all about a gardener and his struggle with brambles.

The Dixieland Jazz Trio provides the musical backdrop in the morning, with The He Hews and their brand of ska/skiffle in the afternoon. Craft demonstrators include pottery, willow hurdles, pole lathe turning, spinning, weaving and dyeing and bead making. There will also be craft stalls and ideas for green living.

The Nancy Oldfield Trust’s electric boat will be offering boat trips on the broad, alongside Fairhaven’s ‘Primrose’.
