Sunday is Children’s Day and includes the same activities as Adults’ Day plus a petting farm, bouncy castle, face painting and children’s roundabout. A percentage of the proceeds from the event will go to Chiltern Friends of the Endeavour, which supports disabled adults with varying degrees of physical and learning disabilities.
