Easter Funday kicks of 2016 major events calendar at Oulton today

Monday, March 28 2016

Oulton Park will host an occasion for all the family with Easter Funday which takes place today (Easter Monday) with a feast of entertainment for individuals of all ages including a funfair, children's entertainers, a mega Easter Egg hunt, music from Dee 106.3 FM, craft stalls, jousting and Formula 1 car demonstrations, driving experiences, and four-wheeled motor racing on the Fosters circuit.

This will be an event with a difference with many of the activities taking place in a showground area, with an added emphasis on the funfair and village games to create a laid back atmosphere with fun for everyone. Children can take part in a mega Easter Egg hunt or enjoy shows in the big top from The Flying Seagulls Family Entertainers, whilst adults can browse The Market Company's extensive selection of artisan stalls.

Chester's Dee 106.3 FM will be providing a lively soundtrack to the showground, and Chester the Cat and the Dee team will be entertaining visitors throughout the day. Dee will also be broadcasting links from the event on their FM and DAB stations throughout the day.

The showground will also feature a historic military vehicle display, recalling Oulton Park's past as a army staging ground during World War II. An even earlier era will be the theme of a spectacular jousting show from the Knights of Middle England with the heroic knights performing breathtaking stunts as they recreate a popular medieval sport!

Modern-day gladiatorial competition will take place on the Fosters circuit, which will feature demonstrations from Jordan and Benetton Formula 1 cars. There will also be thrilling action from a variety of racing categories including F1-style single-seaters, the VAG Trophy for Volkswagen group cars, plus the Ford XR Challenge for classic 1980s Ford hot hatchbacks and Northern Saloons and Sportscar Championship for a wide variety of cars.

Visitors to Easter Funday will also be able to get behind the wheel with several fun driving activities including powersliding a rally-prepared Toyota GT86 and a mud-plugging 4x4 course in a Land Rover Defender.  Even younger fans won't miss out with the venue's YoungDrive MINIs available to 11-17 year-olds at the event - these can be purchased on the day and you can find out more in the reception at Chequers restaurant.
