A FUN-PACKED day for the whole family is promised when Burbage Common holds its 21st annual open day on Sunday 10 May 2015.

The area around the visitor centre will be transformed with a marquee accommodating a wide variety of stalls including craft stalls, charity stalls and local and national environmental charities.

In the main arena there will be a programme of entertainment throughout the day, including a performance from a group of Morris dancers, a falconry display and a fun dog show, with a number of different categories. Visitors can enter their dogs on the day.

Demonstrations of traditional countryside crafts including wood turning, leather making and wool spinning, a bird walk around the stunning bluebell woods and pond dipping or den building, are a few of the many popular activities to enjoy.

Refreshments will be available from the visitor centre. Hot food will also be on sale from the local farmers’ market stalls

Admission to the event, which runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm, is free but there may be small charge for some of the activities and workshops held.
