Under fives fiesta

More than 2,000 visitors joined us for the first day of our under fives picnic parties – and it was belter.

The sun shone brilliantly and we’re forecast more of the same for today when we’re expecting a further 2,000 little ones and adults on site.

Yesterday the 11th century Castle Courtyard was buzzing with excitement as youngsters enjoyed Flip and Dippy’s puppet show, animal encounters, face painting, balloon modelling, a bouncy castle and a fancy dress parade.

The same fun line-up will feature at today’s party along with chance to meet DZG mascot Jambi and many more costume characters.

DZG Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “Our two-day annual event for under fives is always hugely enjoyable and we had an amazing day yesterday in glorious sunshine.

“I’m sure today will be just as terrific as once more we’ve got the weather, a packed programme of activities and the stunning setting of the courtyard.”

Tickets to today’s Under 5s Picnic Party are still available at the entrance priced £6.50 per child (2-5 years) and £6.50 per adult.
