Ramped will be bringing their Skateboard/Scooter ramps with advice and training thrown in.

There will be a number of exciting Arts Workshops, live music, and a drumming workshop witOlugbala Kokumo .


Everyone will have the opportunity of looking round our new Visitor Centre, talking to our expert volunteers and walking round the site.  Guided tours will be available at times during the day.

Entrance is free to all, as is access to Wi-Fi on-site.

The Friends will also be offering free food and a drink to all those attending who are under 16 - older folks will have to pay, but prices will be very reasonable.
