There will be opportunities to try your hand at milling flour, do some colouring, and enjoy the stunning views from the top of the three-storey building.

Family Theatre - Trinity Fair


In the Windmill Garden at 12:30pm, Garlic Theatre will be performing 3 Little Pig Tails: a brand new version of the classic story of the three little pigs set in Paris. A grumpy old wolf is a chef who wants some pigs' tails for his soup.  Will the little pigs outwit the wolf and what kind of house will they build?  A funny, warm-hearted and interactive rustic tale to make you squeal with laughter, bristling with puppets, live music and lots of joining in. Garlic Theatre entertain the whole family with beautifully crafted puppets, music and a garlicky French twist to the tale.
