Wild Woodland Weekend with The Gruffalo

Take a stroll into the deep dark wood this Autumn, as we welcome an appearance from The Gruffalo at our Wild Woodland Weekend!

The mythical monster will be appearing at intervals across the weekend, with lots of other woodland-related special guests and activities also on show.

We’ve got Gruffalo-themed crafts, story time readings and tasty woodland treats in the café. We will also be celebrating some of the other creatures from the deep dark wood, with Haven Falconry bringing owls to meet, a snake display, and our own collection of cute harvest mice on show in their new area.

As well as trying to catch a glimpse of The Gruffalo’s knobbly knees, and turned-out toes (and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose!) you can also enjoy the rest of the park over the weekend, with Tapnell’s amazing new interactive “Bug Shows” going on in the animal theatre.

Standard admission prices to Tapnell Farm Park apply for both days, but they are advising anyone wishing to attend to purchase their tickets in advance online to guarantee entry. Online tickets are available to purchase up until midnight the day before a visit and offer a discount on regular gate prices.
