Half Term Fun at The Ice Cream Farm

Wednesday, 31 October 2018

Following our visit to the Ice Cream Farm in the summer holidays, we were invited back again this week to see the new Playhouse Show.

We arrived when the Farm opened today. It was nice and quiet which meant the kids could have a really good run around outside and play in the outdoor playground. This area is always a hit with the kids. It's the main area of the Farm that is totally free to use. Most of the other areas you need to pay for either with cash or a Play Pass.

We met a few family members at the Farm so went for a coffee in The Pantry and then back outside for another play. We then took a wander to see the animals. The kids then wanted a go on Marshmallow Mound - the inflatable pillow. We used our Play Pass for these and as per last time. the kids spent more time on the larger pillow with the big kids than on the smaller one!

We headed back to The Pantry for a spot of lunch and then it was our Playhouse show time so I took the kids to the Tipi Theatre to see Betty Butterscotch's School of Magic. Miss A immediately recognised the characters from when we saw the Summer show. The kids really enjoyed the songs and particularly the dancing at the end as all the children were invited up to the area in-front of the stage to have a dance. Miss A was trying really hard to copy the dance moves of the actors.

The performance is just 35 minutes which is a good length for Master R in particular. It was nice that the cast offered to have pictures with the audience members at the end.

See the Ice Cream Farm website for details of Playhouse show dates and times. The show is a nice addition and something different to do on your visit, particularly if you have been to the Farm before. It's fairly priced at £4 a ticket for children, £1 for adults. It's worth booking online in advance as you get a Single Play Pass worth £4.50. Also, if you wear fancy dress to watch the show then you are entered in to a draw to win a VIP Pass worth £100.

With all the talk of Ice Cream in the show, we met back up with the rest of our group and went to the Parlour for an ice-cream. It's always a hard decision what flavour to choose! A final play in the playground and then it was time to for home with Miss A asking when she can go back to the Ice Cream Farm again!

Along with tickets to the show we were kindly gifted a Play Pass to use for some of the activities. I paid for all our food and ice creams.
