February Half Term Events at Amelia Trust Farm
Mr Marvel's Marvellous Magic Show
Back by popular demand! We're thrilled to be welcoming Mr Marvel back to Amelia Trust Farm this February half term.
Be prepared to be amazed and entertained by the wonderful Mr Marvel. Packed full of magic, interaction, and audience participation, you'll love every second of the marvellous magic show. There will be two shows, a 10:30am show aimed at 4 - 6 year olds, and a 1:30pm show aimed at 7 - 10 year olds.
Before or after the show, you can enjoy our fabulous seasonal trail, see the animals, wander through the woodland, and explore the rest of our Care Farm.
Please arrive at the Farm at least 15 minutes before the show is due to start, this will give you time to get down to the Sports Hall and settle in.
Be a Farmer for the Day
Ideal for children aged 8 - 12 years to experience being a farmer for the day!
Our Be a Farmer days are incredibly popular, and we are really excited to be running a Be a Farmer for the Day activity during February half term.
A full day of fun at the Farm that is perfect for animal enthusiasts to experience life on a Care Farm.
Children will spend the day in a small group with one of our Animal Care Team, helping to complete essential tasks around the Farm. The day will be split into 3 sessions with a morning break and a break for lunch. Children can expect to get stuck in with a variety of different activities, and can ask as many questions during the day as they would like!
Children will need to bring their own lunch and wear suitable clothing (including wet weather gear) - you will get muddy!
Parents will not be able to stay with the children throughout the day, but you are welcome to buy separate entrance tickets and enjoy the Farm on your own. If you would like to explore the Farm after the activity, please feel free to do so as entrance to the Farm is included in the Be a Farmer ticket price. You can enjoy seeing the other animals, strolling through the woodland, spotting wildlife, and being in the fresh air.

Teddy Bear Time
Teddy Bears are more than just a toy. They're a best friend, loyal companion, and are always ready for an adventure!
We love welcoming teddy bears and their owners to Amelia Trust Farm, and we are incredibly excited about our Teddy Bear Time activity that's new for 2023!
What will children do during Teddy Bear Time?
During our Teddy Bear Time activity, children will make their teddy bear, name their bear, and then design and make a t-shirt to suit their bear.
All children will leave the activity with their beautiful teddy bear, a certificate, and a teddy bear themed activity pack that they can finish at home. The session will last for two hours, and is suitable for children aged 4 and older.
You're welcome to drop your children off for the activity and collect them at the end of the session.
If you'd rather stay near by, Bro Coffi will be onsite selling hot drinks and snacks for parents and guardians to enjoy. Once you've collected your child, you are welcome to take Teddy on his first adventure. You can explore our woodland, see the animals, and enjoy our lovely Care Farm.
We can't wait to welcome you to the Farm for Teddy Bear fun!
