Family Entertainment

Free children's activities take place across all 4 days within the Showground. On Saturday and Sunday, under 18s can visit for just £3 (up to 4 kids per paying adult) with children aged 5 and under FREE every day. So, bring the whole family along - it is a perfect opportunity to educate children about food, gardening and wildlife.

Free children's activities run by Little Folks Day Nursery on Picnic Hill:

  • Face Painting
  • Creating Father's Day cards
  • Plus much more...

Little ones will love spending time in the sand this summer with our fantastic large sandpit sponsored by Bathgate using their extra safe and clean play sand.
