What's On This Festival

Giving Back 

We recognise as a construction company that we use large amounts of timber to create homes and, although these are sourced through timber forests planted with this in mind, we are conscious of how our industry impacts the environment and are always looking at ways we can give back. 

As a way of giving back to the environment & our community, we are giving each child a tree to take home and plant in their own gardens and enjoy watching them grow. 

We are also giving each child an environmentally friendly ‘Save a Turtle’ bag with educational information that is important to our community and environment.

Bee Lantern Making

Children will be able to make a bee lantern in preparation for them to participate in the 1770 Festival Lantern Parade later in the afternoon.

Please make sure to come back before the parade to pick up your lantern and light!

Bee Seed Clay Ball Making!

Children will learn how to make bee clay balls that can be thrown into their garden at home.

They need little maintenance and sit on top of the soil until it rains.

The seeds are protected from wildlife and won’t dry out.

When enough rain falls the balls soften and the seeds sprout into bee loving plants. 


On Sunday, our tent will still be operating with some kid’s activities thanks to GAPDL’s Agnes Water Visitor Information Centre team!

Upcycled Planting Activity!

Children will be able to plant a bee friendly plant into a recycled water bottle.

They can then hang it or sit it outside at home for bees to access regularly. 

It’s a fantastic activity displaying the importance of reusing/upcycling rubbish so that it is kept out of landfill and our waterways.
