Nick Brooks, Centre Manager, said: “Mudfest promises to be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for families to spend an exciting day together and discover the powers of mud. It’ll be a day out you’ll all remember, long after you’ve washed off the wellies!”
Mudfest-goers might be surprised to learn that there’s much more to mud than meets the eye. As well as providing the perfect playground for some seriously squelchy fun, mud is teeming with life like bugs and molluscs – all of which make the perfect meal for a whole host of wetland birds, amphibians and mammals.
Mudfest is included in normal admission, with members and under 4s going free. Some crafts and puddle jumping are additional costs.
