Timbertown takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend and the programme for 2018 is as follows (one day shorter than normal):

Saturday (Signing in from 10.30, opening at 11am, closing at 4pm)

Building, Painting and Decorating - Children join a group based around the theme, build a hut using timber and material provided by local companies. Children bring their own real tools (hammers, saws, etc) with all building materials (nails, timber, etc) provided by Timbertown. All paints are provided by Timbertown and are emulsion paint.
