It's Magic at the Farm - Lyndhurst

Join us at Longdown Activity Farm on 8th and 29th August and enjoy lots of madcap humour and magical mayhem with one of the UK’s top family entertainers Silly Scott. During the day Silly Scott will be performing two completely different award-winning family magic shows jam-packed full of comedy magic with guaranteed belly laughs for the whole family. Silly Scott will also be balloon-twisting between his shows, and can make some fantastic creations! As well as magical entertainment from Silly Scott, we have our usual full schedule of daily hands-on animal activities such as bottle-feeding goat kids and the small animal encounter where you can hold baby animals such as chicks and bunnies. There are lots of fabulous indoor and outdoor play areas at Longdown Activity Farm, so whatever the weather there’s always something to do. Children’s favourites, pony riding* and the bumpy tractor ride (ground conditions permitting) will continue to run throughout the two days Silly Scott is with us, as well as throughout the school holidays. So, for a magical, fun-filled day at the Farm, visit Longdown Activity Farm on 8th and 29th August. There is no extra charge for Silly Scott’s shows.
