Now in its 5th year, this event will be bigger and better than ever before, with activities for the children during the day and a campfire with live music and a fire show in the evening.

We’re delighted to invite you to celebrate with us as we launch our new weekly sessions (starting Tues 12th Sept) to get families & children in the local community involved in farming and nurturing of the environment. If you’d like to come along or know more about these new sessions please message us on Facebook or via email hundredrivermm@gmail.com.

This years event will run from 10am Saturday to 1am Sunday. You are welcome to bring a picnic but there will be on-site catering providing food throughout the event (including Hundred River Burgers, Chilli Con-Carne, Goulash & Ice cream). Whilst we will have a small bar with Ale and Cans available to purchase you are allowed to bring your own alcohol, within reason* – Strictly over 18’s only.

Magic Garden Tuesdays (U5’s)

You can purchase a monthly ticket for £10 per person to get priority booking and earn rewards for referring a friend. As well as the weekly open sessions, we are also running a regular Funday Event on a Sunday every 6 weeks – See facebook events page for details.

We are available for private sessions, group bookings or school visits on Wednesdays, Thursdays and at weekends (subject to availability).

Next spring (when evenings are lighter) we will be offering a weekly after-school session on Tuesdays from 15:30. These sessions will cater for broader ages and will include more practical activities and projects to help us develop the gardens and natural habitats around the farm.

We are only just starting out so if you’ve got an idea or skill to share then please get in touch – We are open to collaborations and joint ventures particularly with groups of young people or schools. Follow us on facebook for latest updates or email hundredrivermm@gmail.com.

Frequently Asked Questions: Maze

In 2017 we are open everyday from July 22nd – September 3rd between 10am – 5pm (last entry at 4pm). Admission prices and general information can be found here.

Below are some the frequently asked questions about our maze:

Can I bring my dog?

No, Sorry. We’re on a working farm with livestock, free-range children and hot food so can only allow registered guide dogs.

Is there disabled/buggy access?

The cafe area and toilets are accessible (excluding motorised wheelchairs) but the maze itself is only lightly compacted earth – it’s usually suitable for buggies or wheelchairs with off-road or slightly bigger wheels, however after heavy rainfall it can become quite bumpy so please get in touch to discuss any particular accessibility requirements.

Do we cater for parties and group bookings?

We offer tailored activity sessions and private events that can be personalised to suit any celebration, age or group sizes. Please email hundredrivermm@gmail.com if you would like a specific quote – we can include party bags, games and various catering options upon request.

What food is available to purchase?

Our kitchen is open everyday throughout the summer from 11am – 4pm. We serve burgers made from Hundred River grass-fed Beef which has been aged for 21 days to maximise the flavour (Home-made spicy-bean and chicken burger alternatives available). Served with crisps, hand-cut chips or fruit with artisan ice-cream for desert. Hot and cold drinks available.

Can we bring our own food?

Whilst we encourage you to try our delicious burgers, ice-cream and other locally sourced produce you are welcome to bring your own picnics – please remember to bring a rubbish bag and PLEASE don’t litter in the maze – Thank you.
