Your child’s starting school – and we’d love to celebrate with you!

On 27 August, our First Day at School Festival will be offering a colourful programme of events for primary school starters and their families between 10 am and 5 pm, with lots of hands-on activities. If you’re starting school for the first time, admission is free and – while stocks last – you’ll receive a small traditional sugar cone from us (distributed from 10 am to 4 pm).

To find out what surprises lie in store, check back here once the summer holidays start. Until then, we’ll be keeping busy planning your big day 😉
