Following on from the huge success of the Big Day Out in 2022, we are really excited to see the Big Day Out return in this year’s festival. The Big Day Out At The Castle is a fun and educational day out for all the family. The event will offer art workshops, dancing (the Big Dance), archaeological mini-digs, guided tours of the Castle, RSPB stall, porpoise spotting, and storytelling with the National Literacy Trust.
