There will also be an online silent auction with some amazing prizes.

Live Shows

We have two fabulous shows for you!

‘Busy Bees’

We are so excited to feature Maddie Moate at our Family Fun Day! Maddie is a much-loved children’s TV presenter who is passionate about education and excites children the world over with her educational YouTube channel and her many books.

Maddie Moate is the host of Cbeebies ‘Maddie’s Do You Know?’ and CBBC’s ‘Show Me The Honey’, but did you know she also keeps honey bees? For the past five years, Maddie has been making videos about honey bees on her YouTube Channel, but now it’s time to bring her love of bees to the stage!

In her ‘Busy Bees’ live show, Maddie will answer all your BEE-rillant questions as she teaches us about foraging, honey production, and the importance of bees as pollinators. Expect honey taste tests, fancy dress, silly games, and an epic waggle dance finale!

 ‘Maddie and Harry’s African Adventure’

Last year Maddie was joined by our patron, England International Cerebral Palsy Footballer Harry Baker, as they together took on the challenge of a lifetime to raise funds and profile for Rafiki Thabo – they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro!

While Maddie excitedly skipped along, snapping photos and videos, thrilling us all with her fabulous knowledge about nature and wildlife, and even did one of her famous biscuit reviews live at midnight from Kibo camp at 4,750m, Harry had us in fits of laughter with endless funny stories, ran a Pilates session for the team at Horombo camp at 3,720m, played football with the mountain guides at almost every rest stop and insisted on reaching the summit despite his left leg giving him trouble and the onset of altitude sickness!

Maddie and Harry have some amazing stories to tell: about curious creatures, staggeringly beautiful nature, how tough it was, and also why they both so passionately took on this challenge. They will also show you some of their favourite photos from their African Adventure.

Competition!

Check out our fabulous competition for children aged 4 to 14 years old! Our theme is ‘A Better World for All’ and entries can be made in one of four categories, all engaging the children in thinking about how they can help make our world a better place for people, wildlife and the environment! Competition entries will be short 60 second films, and the winners and their films will be presented at our Family Fun Day by Maddie Moate! Children who enter the competition will receive a promo code for a free ticket to the Family Fun Day (T&Cs apply).
