Fun for the whole family at annual festival
** Please note the event date has been changed from 23 September to 7 October **
Celebrate the changing seasons at Milton Country Park’s annual autumn festival, which promises a bountiful crop of family fun, food and stalls to explore. Taking place on 7 October, the event, celebrating its fifth year, proudly supports local independent food businesses, crafters and creatives, bringing a real community feel. And all proceeds raised go to towards the upkeep of this treasured park, helping to keep it open and accessible for everyone to enjoy.
There’s plenty of fun in the great outdoors which kids can get stuck into, including wild outdoor play, magical workshops, dressing up, a miniature steam train and crafting activities. Grown-ups, meanwhile, can taste their way around an abundance of real ales and ciders, enjoying live music from the likes of Big 10, Pretty Ace and Among the Citizens.
Cambridge’s street food collective foodPark will be out in force in Remembrance Meadow, joined by Provenance Kitchen and The Allotment Co, plus Temper & Glaze, who’ll be serving tea and homemade cakes from a beautiful vintage caravan in the orchard. Fancy some messing about on the water? Activities include SUP (stand up paddleboarding), a canoe safari and hovercraft rides on the lake, plus a whole host of stalls to discover, selling crafts and gifts. The festival runs 10.30am-5pm and tickets are £6 for adults and free for children.
