We will finish of the events with a great show from Fred in the Shed, on August 28th starting at 10am and running until 12pm. Fred in the Shed is a great comedy show with a whole host of laughs for all of the family. 

Head of Youth Activities Dan Carter said, "We wanted to expand our range of free activities during the school holidays with the previous fun days always being so well attended. We understand how hard it can be to entertain children, especially if you are on a tight budget and that is why we make sure these events are free and accessible. It's important to bring the community together to take part. We hope to see lots of people attending throughout August."
