Handwritten review of Spring Live! by Ben (8)
Not as well-known as the South of England Show and not quite as warm, Spring Live! offers a full day of really good quality and varied family entertainment for a very reasonable entrance fee with children under 16 getting in free. There are 100s and 100s of stalls inside and out, free workshops, a regular sheep shearing display, live music, outdoor board games, a funfair and a really good selection of caterers for snacks or a hot lunch. If you took a picnic and just opted for the free workshops, displays and exhibitions you could still have a day packed full of great activities without spending more than the adult entrance fee. There are also lots of additional activities for children and adults for a charge starting at a very reasonable £2 per person. Of the activities we tried, the mini monster trucks were the favourite with our two, with the bumper cars coming in a close second, but they could have easily spent over an hour just looking at the rabbits and deciding which was their favourite.
Spring Live! is on again today Monday 6th May 2019
