Summertime Bonanza at Tapnell Farm Park

From Saturday 22 July – Sunday 3 September, visitors to Tapnell Farm Park can enjoy a bonanza of summer fun with even more all-weather family entertainment than ever before!  Here’s a quick summary of all the extra activities and evening entertainment you won’t want to miss!

As well as the award-winning farm play (bouncy pillows, sledge slides, pedal go-karts, straw bale fun …) and animals to meet and greet (wallabies, meerkats, goats, donkeys, pigs, alpacas …) …


Daily from 22 July – 3 September:

Catch daily falconry displays in the events barn; marvel as these beautiful birds swoop and dive over your head, and find out more about them from the handlers.  And if getting lost is your thing, check out the giant new Maize Maze, now relocated into the Farm Park


Mondays – Fridays:

Unleash your competitive streak and have a go at the Tapnell Olympics with tug of war, welly wanging, sack races and more!  Test your musical knowledge in the Barn Bingo; lots of pop songs that everyone will know!  Plus, back by popular demand, Trotter Training with our delightful kune kune pigs (so cute!).  Feel the breeze and enjoy the view as you whip through the air on our new outdoor zip wires!  … and let’s not forget the mischievous Osmond the ostrich who will be causing mayhem too!


Plus, there will be craft workshops on selected days: Tie Dye workshops on Tuesdays, Wanda workshops (rotating each week: wands, slime and potions!) on Wednesdays and Pottery workshops on Thursdays.  These will incur a small charge.


Evening entertainment …

Every Tuesday evening, from 23 July, following the success of last year, visitors can enjoy Farm Fun & Film Nights with a screening of Paddington (25 July, 8 & 22 August) or Sing (1, 15 & 29 August).  From 5pm-7.30pm, all areas of the Farm Park will be open for children to play and let off steam, then from 7.30pm, settle down in the events barn and watch your favourite film.  Visitors are invited to bring a blanket to sit on and there will be straw bales around the barn too.  A licensed bar, Captain Pizza and sweet treats will be available.  Check out our special combo day tickets where you can stay and play from 10am – 7.30pm and then watch the film.  Evening tickets also available online.




Every Thursday from 25 July, the Farm Park is open from 10am – 8pm so you can stay and play!

From 4pm, join the Tapnell Team for The Island’s Biggest Kids’ Party!  We’re going BIG on fun and entertainment! Back by popular demand, the internationally renowned Bubble Wizard and his Giant Bubble Stage Show – who knows, you may end up in a giant bubble yourself!  Plus, we’re taking classic kids party games and making them bigger and even more entertaining! Be mesmerised by our marvellous magician, and to round off the night, join in our disco and party dances! With fun prizes to be won, and a licensed bar, it will be a night to remember for all the family.


Come rain or shine, there is something to keep the family entertained this summer at Tapnell Farm Park!


Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Unless stated otherwise, the Farm Park is open 10am – 5pm. For full details and to book your session, please visit the website here.
