Prescot Shopping Centre in Merseyside is running an exciting programme of children’s entertainment over the summer holidays. Jolly Good Productions will be there on several of the event days. There will be lots of variety with magic, pupets, circus and face Painting too. Full details can be found on the Prescot Shoping Centre web site.
What a brilliant day at Thorp Perrow Arboretum near Bedale in North Yorkshire. I love this place it is so beautiful. Sir John Ropner and his team have done such a good job in making it a really nice place to visit. The staff are friendly and helpful, it’s easy to park, there is a lovely cafe, ample seating and even a little plant shop too.
I was there for Circus Mayhem and we had lots of families coming along to try their hand at juggling, stilt walking, plate spinning, diabolo and other fun things too.
Some people brought picnics whilst others bought food and drinks from the cafe and sat round in the sunshine enjoying the surroundings.
Another big attraction at Thorp Perrow is the Bird of Prey and Mammal Centre :
The Falcons of Thorp Perrow is the ultimate family day out, incorporating the opportunity to learn more about birds of prey and associated wildlife, with the enjoyment of hands on experience for all the family.
Here are a few photos I took :
