The countdown to Great Days Out 2013 has well and truly begun

There are only 5 weeks to go until the launch of Great Days Out 2013, and details of the entertainment and activities on offer have now been announced. Within the Activity Village there is a chance to try out the indoor climbing wall that comes courtesy of Challenge for Change, as well as the Segway course from Go Ape and Namco interactive games consoles.

Elsewhere, the Entertainment Arena boasts a fun packed and exciting programme that includes workshops with the animals of the South Lakes Wild Animal Park, demonstrations and beer tasting thanks to Robinson’s Brewery.

The shortlist for the UK Coach Rally and UK Coach Awards will also be announced at the one-day show, ahead the award ceremony in April. As always, accredited Blue and Green Badge tour guides from across the North of England will be on hand to answer questions and the Farmers’ Market – a firm favourite of the show – returns again with the best of local produce from the region.

Great Days Out 2013 takes place on Saturday, 9 February at EventCity next to The Trafford Centre. Among the exhibitors attending are: Beamish Museum, Lightwater Valley Theme Park, the Severn Valley Railway and the Southport Flower Show.
