Membership FAQs

What are your revised opening dates?
During the period we were closed due to the pandemic, we have worked hard to find a way that we can adapt to cope with the current situation and ensure the Adventure Farm continues to help make memories for families for years to come. Therefore, we will be making some changes to our opening dates.

The main change is that we will no longer open every day. This is based on historical daily visitor numbers. By closing on selected days it will enable us become more efficient, which helps us in continuing to deliver great value for money on the days that we are open which is when the vast. The table below shows our planned opening days going forward for the rest of 2020 and in to 2021:

September - October
