Other Big Top events throughout the Easter school holidays include Punch & Judy, Flip the Clown, BubbleJo’s Bubble Show and a brand-new show – Mr Moo at the Circus. Easter weekend – from Friday 14th April to Monday 17th April – guarantees a visit from the Easter Bunny with some yummy treats.

Each day of the school holidays, from Saturday 1st April to Monday 17th April, you can also see amazing daily flying demonstrations from the onsite Kent Owl Academy, and, depending on the weather, enjoy traditional donkey rides, challenging water zorbing or make your way around the site on the brightly coloured land train. Of course, Kent Life is a farm so now is the time to celebrate the baby boom that comes with spring. Lambs, goat kids, calves and piglets will all be finding their feet in the world and you can even have a go at bottle feeding some of them. Of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without fluffy chicks so learn how to identify fertilised eggs in the hatchery.
