Bucklebury Farm hosts four-day jubilee farm festival and names duckling after Queen
A newborn duck was named after the Queen at a Platinum Jubilee farm festival that also saw magical bubbles being blown and visitors learning a variety of circus skills.
Bucklebury Farm hosted the four-day festival, which ran over the entirety of the extended bank holiday, and featured many different activities for children and parents to take part in.
Six ducklings were born on Friday, June 3, with the farm naming one of them Elizabeth in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Casey Charlton-Northway, a member of the admissions team at Bucklebury Farm, said it was a great four days.
“It was just an amazing vibe,” he said. “Having the pizza van here that everyone loved, having all the different activities which added so much on top of all the things we already have here.”
The festival had live music acts, arts and crafts workshops, and theatre, dance and circus performers, with every day culminating in a musical parade through the farm.
On Saturday, June 4, a bubble fairy was present at the farm, with children following her magical cart around the farm all day.
Vintage singer Emma Jane also performed on the day, with Mr Charlton-Northway stating: “She was amazing. Everyone loved her.”
Circus performer Thalia Swann ran many workshops over the weekend, teaching Bucklebury Farm visitors how to juggle and hula hoop.
