Channel 5 has launched 5 On the Farm, a three-day outdoor festival taking place at Barnsley’s Cannon Hall Farm, home of Channel 5’s This Week on the Farm.
Taking place from August 28-30, 5 On the Farm will allow visitors to step into the world of Channel 5’s best-loved shows, attend panels and Q&As, watch live demos, take part in a host of making, baking and countryside activities, meet the animals and see their favourite stars perform throughout the weekend.
Talent already confirmed to appear across the bank holiday weekend include Our Yorkshire Farm’s Amanda Owen, stars of Our Yorkshire Vet, Julian Norton and Peter Wright, and Cannon Hall Farm’s very own famous farmers Dave and Rob Nicholson.
Channel 5’s Milkshake! will come alive in the Milkshake! Meadow where kids will be able to meet the characters from their favourite shows, watch live performances from presenters Derek Moran, Jen Pringle and Kemi Majeks on the Milkshake! Stage, take part in arts and crafts and fun lessons on the great outdoors, and get their hands dirty in Milkshake! garden.
If that wasn’t enough, ticket holders will be able to take a trip to the on-site country pub and enjoy a range of local and home-made food and drink stalls!
Ben Frow, director of programmes for ViacomCBS’s UK networks, including Channel 5 said: “We are always looking for new ways to connect with our loyal audiences and bring them even more opportunities to engage with their favourite programmes. What better way to celebrate the best of Yorkshire and our most-loved shows than by giving viewers the chance to meet all their favourite stars, take part in fun activities and spend the day at the home of This Week on the Farm.”
Ghostwriter has been confirmed as production partner on the event, working closely alongside Channel 5.
