Great day at Marsh Farm KidsFest, despite the weather! Highlight was our son joining in the circus skills workshop; he is shy in groups and never joins in anything so it was lovely moment for us. Very well organised and everyone kept smiling even when it rained. Really cannot recommend this event enough 🙂
