‘BLAST OFF’ at Tapnell Farm Park’s brand new event


‘BLAST OFF’ at Tapnell Farm Park’s brand new event

Get ready to blast off this September at Tapnell Farm Park’s new Space Weekend … an out of this world experience for all the family!

Taking place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September, this all-weather event features incredible, explosive, interactive Rocket Shows and Rocket Making Workshops by the amazing Wonderstruck Science Company.

Be blown away!  Have you ever wondered how a rocket engine works?  Find out with the Rocket Show’s demonstrations of a working pulse jet engine, a hybrid rocket motor and a full-size working rocket car!  Then get ready for blast off!  Learn how to build your own compressed air rocket in the Rocket Workshop and launch it into the sky!  There’ll be a competition to see who can fire their rocket the furthest!


Plus, build your own space colony in our Big Brick Build Off competition, travel the solar system with our virtual planet tour and craft your own rocket or colour your own spaceship, in our Space Crafts Cabin.

This Space Weekend event is included in the normal Tapnell Farm Park admission, and free with Summer Season Passes.  Tickets must be booked online in advance.

Tapnell Farm Park is open daily 10am – 5pm.
