Boasting the flavours of summer, the Good Food and Craft Market will be held from 10am – 3pm throughout the lawn, along Main Street and inside the Melville Building. Visitors to the Yard can purchase the freshest local produce and unique arts and crafts from the South West’s top suppliers and artisan makers.
Set to be an exhilarating day of family fun, the market will also play host to a range of activities on offer from High 5 Sports & Activity Camps in the Yard’s Residence One Gardens from 11am – 2pm. Helping to get everyone in the spirit of summer and run by a team of local qualified teachers and sports coaches, just some of the activities on offer include soft archery and dodgeball.
For those who can’t make it, don’t worry as High 5 will be returning to host a weekend packed with activities and plenty of laughter! Bounce your way into the weekend on Saturday 3rd August, by having a go at a range of zorbing activities, from duels and rolling races to the hilarious bubble football – thrill seekers can also take a ride down the 20m inflatable outdoor Slip ‘n Slide! Taking place on the Yard’s lawn, simply visit on the day to book a session for just £3.00. For those using the Slip ‘n Slide, don’t forget to bring a towel and a change of clothes!
On Sunday 4th August, visitors are invited to join High 5’s Wild Tribe Family sessions to experience life as a survivalist. Under the guidance of experts, families can learn how to build a shelter, as well as the art of fire lighting. Once mastered, you can also have a go at cooking (and eating – if you choose!) a selection of insects, including meal worms and crickets. Other, more traditional open fire treats will also be available, including hot chocolate and marshmallows on homemade skewers.
Wild Tribe Family sessions will be taking place on the lawn, both in the morning from 10am – 12pm and in the afternoon from 1pm – 3pm. For £15.00 for a parent and their child, places are available to book on the High 5 website or click here https://bit.ly/2HxaB2n, along with the option to add a second child to the same booking.
High 5 is a local family run business providing multi sports and outdoor activities to children and young people from around Devon. Available to experience at the Yard on select days this summer, its popular activities provide a day of family fun, showcasing just a taster of what the action-packed holiday camps can offer to help keep children active and entertained.
Hailey Cattle, Regional Marketing Manager for Urban Splash, states: “Bringing their special brand of fun, it’s fantastic to welcome High 5 to the Yard, helping us to kick off the summer with a bang! From battling it out in zorbs or having a go at archery, to sampling some of the region’s best food from local traders or mastering the art of fire lighting, it is the perfect opportunity to bring everyone to the Yard for family day out with a difference!
“With so many activities and events happening over the summer, it is one of the best times to explore and experience all that the Yard has to offer and there is always something to see, visit or do. From taking a stroll along the South West Coastal Path, hopping on a boat from our marina, to hanging out on our lawn or dining outdoors at one of our many restaurants, there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained this summer.”
