The countryside comes to London on 28th and 29th September with the Countryside Live event at Walthamstow and Leyton Marshes. Some of our representatives will be there to talk about bumblebees, but there's much more on besides. Read on for more information.
This family friendly event, bringing the countryside into London, has something for all ages and all interests.
The weekend is packed full of arena displays, falconry, sheep dogs and ferret racing and the infamous dancing sheep show. There’s also a range of traditional countryside activities to come and try including willow weaving, corndolly making and wood turning or if you just want to watch, you can marvel at the chainsaw sculptures and the blacksmith demonstrating their trades.
There’s animals galore too! From the more traditional farm animals of sheep, goats, ponies and calves, we’ve also got some smaller animals for you to have a hold of including rabbits, guinea pigs and tortoises. We’ve got some shy and unusual visitors including bats and otters and some critters from foreign places too!
The whole family can get busy with a range of activities including flower pot owl making, apple pressing, the mini-beast challenge, planting tree seeds and dragonfly making.
Admission is £4 for adults; children go free.
