  • We expect the carpark to be busy so please allow at least 15-20 mins to park / walk to Norden Farm / pick up tickets / find your workshop
  • Workshops will take place across the building - Norden Farm will be well sign posted, use posters to find out where you should be and check the location on your tickets
  • We recommend dressing for mess at our workshops
  • The Café Bar will be open from 9am, serving food from 9am - 3pm. Why not start the day with breakfast? Snacks and soft drinks can be bought throughout the day. Newspapers and WiFi are available to keep adults entertained!
  • Our team of friendly Young Leader volunteers will be on hand to help (look out for their lanyards)
  • Have fun!

  • If you can no longer make your workshop, please let our Box Office team know so that the space can be freed up for another participant!

Disclaimer: Please note that a photographer will be present at some Explore! Workshops. Images will be used for Norden Farm marketing purposes, including, but not limited to, use in printed material such as brochures, on the website and social media, and in local publications. If you do not wish your child to be photographed, please advise our Box Office team on the day (Friday 19 April).
