From coffee mornings and enchanted fortresses to Dinosaur fun and giant bubbles, Matlock Farm Park has a line-up of exciting farmyard fun for the whole family this summer.
Located just a short drive from Alfreton, Matlock Farm Park will keep families entertained with a round-up of events and an ongoing programme of animal activities. Children can learn to ride horses, meet the meerkats, feed the goats, or go go-karting around a purpose-built track.
They can play at the Rainforest Barn – a jungle themed soft play area, or head to the new Enchanted Hamlet – a fortress inspired outdoor obstacle park. There’s also a tot’s area and a café that hosts Parent-Toddler Coffee Mornings every weekday during term-time.
The line-up events include:
Jurassic Fun Day
Kids will learn about Rita the T Rex and join the Jurassic themed bus for games and dig site fun. Free with park entry.
Sunday 26th June / Sunday 7 August 2022 from 10.30am – 4.30pm
Professor Paul Temple’s Punch & Judy Show!
A fabulous comedy take on a children’s classic, this modern Punch and Judy has lots of audience participation and fun for the whole family. Free with park entry.
