The parenting Holy Grail will be achieved this summer with our ultimate family day out. Mums and dads can earn some serious brownie points with the kids by treating them to a thrilling day full of action-packed activities, tons of fun, and some X-traordinary superstar guests to raise the excitement level to fever pitch.
X Factor stars Reggie N Bollie, Honey G and Ryan Lawrie will take to the stage alongside premier tribute band Little Mix Magic. The all-star line-up will offer show-stopping performances during the event, keeping the party atmosphere going from 12 noon until late for kids and adults alike. As well as busting a move and singing along to their favourite hits, families can enjoy a host of super cool Highland Show activities that kids big and small will love, with themed ‘zones’ created to keep the fun going all day long.
Highlights will include a petting zoo, pony rides, laser tag, bungee trampolines and a host of family-friendly games, including a coconut shy, hoopla, beat the goalie and Denver’s Den. Clydesdale Horses and the Mordor Gun Dogs will be in attendance on the day, and visitors can also enjoy live falconry, sheep and duck herding, wood carving, a gauntlet assault course and a display of farming and road vehicles.
