You can help me dig a pond in my plot if you want 😀

A long overdue but massive and most sincere thank you to the lovely folks at Salamander Stoves for donating us this beautiful little stove for the roundhouse at Boiling Wells.

St Werburghs City Farm
Bonfire Night at Boiling Wells 2017

Surprise! By popular demand it's back for a second year. St Werburghs City Farm's glow in the dark, no bang BONFIRE NIGHT family celebration.

But because last year's event was so wildly popular, with a long queue just to get into the queue, this year we are selling tickets in advance right now. And if all these advanced tickets sell out, there will be no entry on the door, so get your ticket today!

On Saturday 4th of November, for one evening only, Boiling Wells will again get a UV makeover. The usual live music, BBQ & bar, plus fire wok, free s'more circle, UV facepainting, our famous UV barn Kid's Rave, and much more!

Tickets are £7.50. Under 12s are free admission, no ticket required, but must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder.

Free glowstick for all entrants. Sorry, no dogs except guide dogs. And remember the site is off grid, and the sun sets at 5.45pm, so bring a torch and a spirit of adventure. Groovy gear strongly encouraged!
