The Living Land is a FREE, one day event offered to Kent school children in years 3 and 4 aimed at educating young children in the areas of farming, agriculture, countryside and healthy eating within the beautiful landscape of the Kent Showground, home to the Kent County Show.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday 04 May, 2017
The Living Land is a well-established event, now in its 14th year and is hugely popular. The timetable of activities includes the opportunity to see and touch farm animals, taste local produce, see dancing sheep at the “Sheep Show”, Birds of Prey and many other displays and demonstrations. Most of the activities are interactive, with a wealth of organisations on hand to share their knowledge with the children and can easily be linked to the school curriculum.
The educational experience is invaluable and taking pupils away from the normal classroom environment, enhances the ability to learn.
The event is free to schools, although we are unable to cover the cost of your coach and travel expenses.
This is a very popular event and places are limited to 2800 children.
This year spaces were all filled within ten days.
Please note this is not a public event. Children can only attend with their school.
