Bishop Burton College’s annual Town & Country Day is bursting at the seams with things to see and do.
Staff and students are busy preparing for what is set to be the largest event yet, on Sunday 24 May. Town really will meet Country in a mixture of demonstrations and activities ranging from dance performances from local competitive group Skyline Studio (Got to Dance finalists), to traditional country skills such as falconry and sheep shearing.
Other highlights include demonstrations on decorating Shire horses, ferret racing, a stuntman aptly named Dangerous Steve, performances from the EYMS Brass Band and whole host of hands-on activities and demonstrations. Children can try their hand at construction, get involved in games, crafts, face painting and competitions, and get up close and personal to some of the College’s famous furry… and not so furry… residents.
Bishop Burton College’s Principal, Jeanette Dawson OBE said: “It is always a pleasure to open up the campus for Town and Country Day, as it gives us the opportunity to showcase the College and our wonderful facilities. It also gives visitors a chance to see a wide variety of demonstrations and activities, all with a distinctly rural flavour.
“From horseball to falconry, chainsaw sculpture to sheep shearing and of course, the prestigious British Eventing Horse Trials, there’s something for everyone this Town and Country Day.”
Last year, the day attracted more 5,000 visitors and with a new transport system in place, this year looks set to be even busier. Visitors can beat the queues by using the free bus services running from Hull, Pocklington and Beverley, as well as a park and ride system from Beverley Race course.
