What’s on at The Teddy Bear’s Picnic 2016…

Zoo2UWith less than three weeks to go we have a jam packed event planned with lots happening for the whole family to enjoy at our 2016 Teddy Bear’s Picnic! Your entrance fee to the picnic will include; access to the beautiful Cholmondeley Castle Gardens, our very special bear hunt, farm yard walks and play area. We will also be joined by Cheshire Fire and Rescue, Princess Elsa (who will be performing!), Zoo 2 U (who will be bringing their owls and skunks) and have displays from Cheshire Gymnastics!

There will also be a number of fun games and stalls for the children to have a go on from classics like Hook a Duck, Splat the Rat and Find the Magic Key to face painting, arts and crafts (including cup cake decorating!) and the all important bouncy castle! We will also have a Pimm’s Tent for the parents, which usually goes down perfectly with a picnic, and of course the Cholmondeley Tea Rooms will be open and serving a delicious selection of home made cakes, sandwiches, snacks and hot and cold drinks. Our sponsors Kumon, Rugby Tots and Cheshire Gymnastics will also be running activities on their stalls for children of all ages to have a go at!

Gates to Cholmondeley Castle  open at 11am and the picnic will wrap up at 5pm. We have a lovely spot set aside for picnics with the castle in the backdrop so bring your picnic rugs and hampers for a fabulous fun filled day! Tickets are now on sale and for all online adult tickets purchased you will receive a free child’s ticket. You can also buy tickets on the day, but discounts won’t apply and a larger proportion of ticket sales goes to The Wingate Centre children’s charity when you buy online!
