Lighting up the sky

One main display featuring stunning pyrotechnics will be held on the Sunday. Free children’s face painting will be available and there will be a funfair with ghost trains, waltzers, and bumper cars. The usual Hop Farm activities will also be available including the children’s driving school, giant jumping pillows, craft and pottery centre, Legends In Wax and indoor and outdoor play areas. Adam and Tom of The Hop Squad will be performing song and dance shows in the Big Red Top. Gates open at 1pm on both days.
