Kids' Club

Every month we look forward to connecting with our market children and their families, by offering a program of activities either free, by donation or at a small charge.

We are excited to offer a program of activities that will be held at the market on Sunday mornings between 10-11am. 

The location at the market will vary from time to time, with most being held in the Market Pavilion (Eastern end), unless otherwise stated.

These activities are a great opportunity to create something special together, so we ask that an adult remains with their child for the duration and provides assistance as required.

While we are currently in our temporary sites while the Royal Show is built, our Kids Club activities are temporarily on hold. Stay tuned to what we have in store when we return to our normal location from 22 September 2024.
