The BIG Event of the year is nearly here – The Tractor Ted Diggers and Dumpers Weekend with MJ Church at Bowood.
Returning for a second year on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th August young children and fans of all things big machine, construction and farm, will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get really close to a range of machines – climb on board a Dumper Truck; get to sit in the driver’s seat of a Digger; sign your name on a Bulldozer; play ‘hook-a-duck’ with an excavator and more. An amazing opportunity for youngsters to get involved with all things Diggers and Dumpers!
The fun and big machine action doesn’t stop there though, as Tractor Ted and construction partners, MJ Church, will be putting on an amazing arena display of construction vehicles and putting them through their paces for the enjoyment of children and parents alike! Who knew that a digger could have all four wheels off the ground and still stay upright?
Carol Heneghan, Business Development and Marketing Manager at MJ Church commented, “Tractor Ted is a really fun event for us to get involved in, it’s an opportunity for our staff, customers and partners to bring their families along for a day out at Bowood and see the machines they use every day in a totally different way. For us though, it’s also a great opportunity to showcase the modern, high tech machines with highly skilled operators that are used on construction sites across the country every day.”
The day will be topped off with fun farm activities – from welly wanging and tractor and trailer rides, to a visit to the Tractor Ted Little Farm to meet the residents including pigs, lambs and pygmy goats. You may even be lucky enough to see a chick hatching!
The fun starts at 11am and entry is included with the Bowood House & Gardens Day Ticket. Buy tickets now at: www.bowood.org.
