Park Hall Farm Gets Ready for Summer

Park Hall Countryside Experience in Oswestry has planned a series of themed weeks to keep Shropshire’s youngsters entertained over the upcoming summer holidays.

The first themed week will be Pirates and Princesses Week from 23-31 July. Join the crew for daily shows featuring Hapless Jim the Pirate and Princess Pearl and take part in a Treasure Hunt. Visitors can meet the princesses and enter a fancy dress competition.

Hysterical Historical Week from 1-7 August will be a wacky and educational event, with a daily ‘Cruel School Show’. Experience life in the on-site trenches and get a glimpse of life in the Iron Age.

From 1 August through to the end of September, Maisy’s Maize Maze returns, with clues along the way to help lost visitors escape.

Dinosaur Week from 8-14 August is back by popular demand. Park Hall will be adding dinosaurs to the usual livestock found at the farm attraction, as well as a fossil digging area, dinosaur training and their hilarious dino races made possible by their sporting farm team.

That is followed by Science Week 15-21 August featuring Grandolph the Wizard’s science show and experiments.

Finally, from 22-28 August, Park Hall will host Animal Magic week with the animal man - Simon Airey. Simon will be bringing animals from Corner Exotics, including snakes and scorpions for visitors to meet.

All the activities are included in the normal admission price, and under 2s go free.

Joint owner – director Richard Powell said, “We are delighted to be heading into summer filled to the brim with fun down on the farm. The activities we have got planned have proved popular in the past, so we expect lots of happy customers!

“As well as the themed events, visitors can enjoy all the usual activities at Park Hall. Inside we have our role-play village, play barn and brickworks, and under 4's sensory play area. Outdoors, families can meet the animals, see the rabbits in Burrow Land, the goats in their playground, take barrel train rides, and enjoy the Crazy Farm Adventure Course and our Woodland Adventure Play Area with a zip wire. There is non-stop fun on offer, and I hope visitors come to see us as many times as they can over the holidays!

“We will be open every day of the holidays. Our activities last summer were very popular, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.”
