“The response to our ‘Amazing Animals’ event last year was absolutely fantastic, and we are really looking forward to welcoming back a range of exotic birds and animals from sites across the city to Temple Newsam Home Farm next week.

“With a variety of fun themed activities on offer and so much to see and do around the farm, this promises to be a great day out for all the family during the school summer holidays.”
