HORSEFAIR SUMMER FUN DAY

HORSEFAIR SUMMER FUN DAY

Wed, 15 Aug 2018 10:00

Summer fun returns for Horsefair's 30th anniversary celebrations!

This summer the Horsefair Shopping Centre turns 30, which means its annual Summer Fun Day will be an extra special one.

It has been 30 years since TV presenter Noel Edmonds visited Wisbech to open the centre and the fun day will mark this.

The event will take place on Wednesday 15th August from 10am until 2pm. All the popular favourites are returning to the centre for the day filled with free activities. There will be face painting, balloon modelling and a fairground ride for children to enjoy.

Then at 11am and 1pm, Uncle Mick's Magical Punch and Judy show will take place to entertain crowds. For the first time at the Horsefair, local charity FACET will be putting on a special musical performance too. There will also be a variety of other stalls and attractions available on the day.

Throughout the day, children will be able to take part in the Horse Hunt Window Competition too with prizes for every child who successfully searches for the hidden horses in the Horsefair's shop windows.

Throughout the week, to celebrate the Horsefair's 30th birthday, there will be a Horsefair History Photographic Trail where many shops will be displaying old photos of the site before the shopping centre was built.

Dinosaur Virtual Reality experience

Fridays and Saturdays: 17th,18th, 24th, 25th, 31st August and 1st Sept. 10:30 am – 3:30pm

Note: this event only takes place on Fridays and Saturdays.

Be immersed in a realistic dinosaur theme park. This interactive experience will fulfil your dreams of entering a world where living, breathing dinosaurs still roam the Earth. Explore this grand, virtual world and share the thrill of witnessing over a hundred prehistoric creatures up-close and personal.

This is just like the first half of a Jurassic Park movie; you explore an amusement park that has brought dinosaurs back to life. The experience begins with a sun-licked train ride into the park, arriving at the main lobby. Here you'll find holograms of dinosaurs that you can formally introduce yourself to without the fear of being eaten. There's also a park map you can jump into and even adorable mini-beasts to pick up and play with.

Pilot the flight of a pterosaurs, commonly know as a pterodactyl. Rise up and take wing on this amazing life force that was the pterosaurs, soring over the landscape of our planet in a time lost so long ago.

PLUS meet Rex, Wisbech and Fenland Museum's very own friendly (but slightly clumsy) Tyrannosaurus Rex!
Follow him from gallery to gallery and see what mayhem he inflicts on the museum.

AGE: 7+

This game is an interesting and exciting experience ideal for children who love to discover. There are some surprises.

£3.50 a session.

Please note that, with the consent of both the Mayor and the Leader of the Council, the meeting of Wisbech Town Council scheduled currently for 20 August 2018 has been cancelled.

The reason for cancellation of the meeting is the absence of decisions required by full Council specifically (the committees are currently very active in that regard) at this time.

This means that the next meeting of Wisbech Town Council will take place on 24 September 2018.

Come along to our new exhibition Dinosaurs! It is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10.00am to 4.00pm and runs until the 29 September. For further details of our accompanying programme of children's activities and VR experiences go to https://www.wisbechmuseum.org.uk/whats-on/

Dinosaur Virtual Reality experience

Fridays and Saturdays: 17th,18th, 24th, 25th, 31st August and 1st Sept. 10:30 am – 3:30pm

Note: this event only takes place on Fridays and Saturdays.

Be immersed in a realistic dinosaur theme park. This interactive experience will fulfil your dreams of entering a world where living, breathing dinosaurs still roam the Earth. Explore this grand, virtual world and share the thrill of witnessing over a hundred prehistoric creatures up-close and personal.

This is just like the first half of a Jurassic Park movie; you explore an amusement park that has brought dinosaurs back to life. The experience begins with a sun-licked train ride into the park, arriving at the main lobby. Here you'll find holograms of dinosaurs that you can formally introduce yourself to without the fear of being eaten. There's also a park map you can jump into and even adorable mini-beasts to pick up and play with.

Pilot the flight of a pterosaurs, commonly know as a pterodactyl. Rise up and take wing on this amazing life force that was the pterosaurs, soring over the landscape of our planet in a time lost so long ago.

PLUS meet Rex, Wisbech and Fenland Museum's very own friendly (but slightly clumsy) Tyrannosaurus Rex!
Follow him from gallery to gallery and see what mayhem he inflicts on the museum.
