Spring into Spalding this March with free family event

Families are being encouraged to Spring into Spalding this March, with a free day of fun-filled activities including a petting farm, virtual reality experiences, vintage rides and live entertainment.

The event, which will run from 10am until 2pm on Saturday 26 March, will have activities for all ages, running alongside the usual traders from Spalding’s weekend market.

A living farm yard in the town centre will offer visitors the chance to meet and interact with an array of animals, including sheep, ponies, goats, rabbits and some smaller fluffy friends as well. There will also be out of this world activities in the Space Dome, where visitors can handle meteorites, as well as virtual reality experiences and a vintage swing boat ride to enjoy.

There will be live stage entertainment throughout the day, a springtime craft corner, the opportunity to plant Spring flowers and create a hotel for mini-beasts at the Nature Lab, a Comedy Maypole Workshop and meet-and-greets with a host of children’s favourites, including Rapunzel, Peter Rabbit and the Gruffalo.

The Broad Street Methodist Church will also be joining the festivities, with Mother’s Day card making, spring and Easter crafts, and hot and cold drinks available throughout the day.

Councillor Gary Taylor, portfolio holder for communities and facilities at South Holland District Council, said: “The arrival of Spring is such a great moment, especially as the weather starts to improve and with South Holland’s strong horticultural background. I am pleased that we are able to mark the occasion with another event designed to bring people together, visiting our town centre and enjoying themselves out and about again.

“Our communities team have put together another packed schedule, with a great variety of different attractions to enjoy and something for people of all ages. I hope to see lots of people there on the day, making the most of these free opportunities and helping support our town centre businesses and traders.”
