The Village.

We are creating a purpose-built village area offering day time and evening time activities and experiences. We hope it becomes a vibrant hub for everyone, providing a wide range of entertainment, areas to grow friendships, chill out, or party the night away.

During the day you will get to see the Big Top shows, access a range of shops and food outlets and discover organisations raising awareness about the world around us.

During the evening you will have access to;

  • ‘Scout Collecting’ exhibition, a unique and special celebration of our Scouting history marking the end of the first decade of our second century.
