Castleford Heritage Trust
The date for Farmer Copley’s festival has been set as Sunday the 28th June from 10am until 4pm. They have all the old faithful acts and displays from vintage tractors and machinery through to modern and not forgetting the classics. The Axe Games are back with welly wanging and the now famous Pie Eating Contest, fancy dress parade, dog show and face painting. The event field will be packed with local craft stalls and exhibitors and Moo Café will be serving up its popular festival fayre. Last year saw record footfall at the Annual Farm Festival, not a parking space left on site or on the roadside!
Returning for 2020 you’ll all be delighted to know is the Sheep Show & shearing demonstrations which really is great fun! The Viking re-enactment is returning as well as a Birds of Prey show. Farmer Copley’s will again be ticketing the event in light of how busy the Pumpkin Festival was and this has now been suggested by WMDC to keep a track on numbers.
The farm shop will be making fresh fudge all day, lots of samples to be tried and hopefully lots of people are going to come along and see what all the fuss is about in Pontefract. The farm will be in swing with the PYO Strawberries, there is nothing better than tasting a strawberry straight off the plant
