Every teddy bear, that's been good,
Is sure of a treat today;
There's lots of wonderful things to eat,
And wonderful games to play!

Jimmy Kennedy, 1932)

If you go down to Overnewton Castle today, you're in for a big surprise! Could there be a more whimsical place for a Teddy Bears' Picnic?

Overnewton Castle was built in 1849 and now stands as a prominent heritage building. This Scottish Baronial style castle, set amidst 4 acres of private tranquil English gardens, makes the perfect day out to enjoy with your family (and their furry friends, of course!)

The Teddy Bear Picnic takes place on Sunday, 30th March, 2014 from 10am - 3pm. Admission is $10 for adults and children (under two years old is free). This includes activities, rides, and entertainment.

Pack a picnic or buy one on the day.

Rides and activities last year included a twirling teacup ride, ponies, painting plaster crafts, popcorn and fairy floss stalls, and of course, every kids' favourite - face painting!

Also enjoy a petting farm, jumping castles, and maybe even a live teddy bear to hug.

Don't forget your picnic rug, nibbles and treats, your favourite drinks, and your favourite teddies. Food and drink also available for purchase.
