Great Dorset Steam Fair

If you are looking for an excellent fun and action packed day out for all the family, you'll love the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Traditionally this English fair is held at the village of Tarrant Hinton, near Blandford Forum in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside.

The Great Dorset Steam Fair is a typically British event offering a unique blend of nostalgia and entertainment. Come and soak up the special festival atmosphere whether as a day visitor or taking in the full five days by camping on site. There is no other event like it anywhere in the world which is why over 200,000 visitors attend each year both from the UK and from all over the World!

Secret World's Wild Academy: Poo Party

Ages 6-10       £5 per child (parents must accompany children)

Here at Secret World we love animal poo. Poo can be really useful in our wildlife hospital as we can check on an animal’s health by studying their droppings. Poo identification skills are also really useful out in the wild as they may be the only sign of animal activity that you can find when out in your local wild patch. Join us this session to find out about food chains, animal digestion and most importantly of all – whose poo is whose!
