Father’s Day at Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park
16th June 2019, 10am to 6pm
Head over to Avon Valley Wildlife Park for a dad-tastic day out. The whole family can have a go at quad-biking, bouncing on massive air pillows, pig racing, boating and more. Dads get in for £1 when accompanied by a full-paying child (and that includes grandads and great-grandads too). Sounds like a great way to show dad how much he rocks. Find out more

How better to celebrate Father’s Day than with a carnival of outdoor adventure, entertainment, inspiration and delicious local food and drink? Camp for the weekend or come as day visitors to make the most of the scenery and activities. Take your pick from foraging, climbing, yoga, axe throwing, dry stone walling and star gazing. And when you’re worn out from all that adventure, you can chill out with some live music at the end of the day. Find out more
