Barton under Needwood Family Festival

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September 2022
from 12noon till 4pm

Are your teddies and soft toy friends ready for more exciting adventures? Then head for Barton under Needwood on September 3rd and 4th when the famous teddy rides will be back in action.

Brave teddies can head for the heights on the Teddy Skywire, plunge into the smoky depths of the Oblivion ride and earn their pilot’s wings on the Top Gun Ted and Target Ted rides.

As last year the rides will be concentrated around St James’ Church in Main Street and the good news for 2022 is that the popular Teddy Passport Office will be back – so teddies will need to be looking their best for that all-important photo!

The rides will run from 12noon to 4pm on both days and the Teddy Passports will cost £5. Remember to choose a teddy bear or soft toy that will fit in the rides. We recommend a maximum height of 35cm.

Other attractions over the weekend will include:

  • Scarecrows
  • Garden show
  • Tea tent
  • Ice cream
  • Candy Floss
  • Music and exhibitions
  • Stalls
  • Bellringing
  • Teddy Bear Service
  • PLUS - Lots more exciting ideas are currently being planned so watch this space!
