February Frolics mean Spring is in sight

Between 10th February and 18th February, through half-term week at St Albans local activity farm there’s plenty of fleecy fun to be had.  It is one of the cutest cuddliest local events of the year with live lambing to experience, alongside a host of other activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Supervised by Tuck the Shepherd you can watch as the smallest members of the Willows Farm flock arrive into the world. There will also be a daily lamb bottle feeding demonstrations in the Willows lambing marquee to bring people together in this celebration of Spring. 

After the lambing there are lots of arts and crafts activities taking place in the Busy Bee Marquee so creative minds can be put to work.  For smaller visitors to Willows Farm they can take a trip to Cotton-Tail Village or Woolly Jumpers Play Barn. There is lots of indoor play opportunities as well as the chance to meet some other animals including goats, guinea pigs and rabbits in the Farmyard.

If you or your children are a fan of Beatrix Potter and her passion for preserving natural environments you will particularly enjoy the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground. And after perhaps enjoy the exciting live performances that take place daily in the Peter Rabbit Theatre. Throughout the day Potter characters including Squirrel Nutkin, Lily Bobtail, Benjamin Bunny, Cotton-Tail, and of course Peter Rabbit himself are ready to meet and greet their admirers every day.

What could be a better way to enjoy a day of your St Albans or Harpenden half term than a visit to  Willows Activity Farm, Colney Heath, St Albans, AL4 0PF. Then its home for tea and a snuggle on the sofa with some Peter Rabbit stories or maybe a snooze in front of Shaun the Sheep!
