Keep an eye out for Magician Quentin Reynolds, a Member of the Inner Magic Circle, who’ll be roving about choosing groups of people to wow with his spellbinding show.

There’s biodiversity and canal history walks, children’s games and –  it goes without saying – the must have Annual Duck Race. An afternoon not to be missed!
