Our little adventures on Days Out

Framlingham Castle has had a new cafe built

English Heritage is the Custodian of hundred of English monuments, helping people understand their history and learn the stories of these sites.

They have worked tirelessly to improve their sites and provide a better experience for visitors, and Framlingham is no exception. Many people visiting Framlingham said that the only thing that would make their day better would be a café, and English Heritage has delivered.  The results of the new project were unveiled on Wednesday 14th June to press and several of their members before officially opening on Friday 16th June.

#WIN Family Ticket to Big Day Out Festival, Kent

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… I was born!

No only joking it wasn’t that long ago, 41 years to be precise and the galaxy was actually Kent, so not that far, but even so, I have always had a soft spot for the place, so you can imagine my immense excitement when I found out there was going to be a Big Day Out Festival in Mote Park, Maidstone on 1st July 2017.

Starting at 12.00 and ending at 22.00 on 1st July 2017, with last entry at 20.00, it looks like its going to be a fantastic family day out, every one of the family is excited about a particular act or event taking place. There really is something for everyone.

Viggo is a tiny bit excited about Paw Patrol and i’m sure Eowyn will love the Fairytale Princesses, Neva is hoping Bounce Land will be available for teens too, and Tyrus is slightly bubble obsessive.

The children are huge fans of BGT, so Diversity is a must see, I confess to watching X Factor most years, so the acts appearing are no strangers, and taking me back to my youth with Atomic Kitten!

I know there are lots of mums out there who have a secret crush on the one and only Mr Bloom, who will also be appearing!

Tickets are priced at £25 per adults and £12 per child aged 6-15, under 5s are just £1, but be warned, the prices will increase after 1st June, so get your tickets NOW!

Or, you could enter my rather fabulous giveaway for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) to the Big Day Out Festival.

Good Luck xxx
