Thousands of visitors are expected to help a Nantwich college celebrate its 90th birthday at an annual family festival.

Reaseheath College’s bumper day of entertainment will feature hundreds of activities, including thrill riding show The Devil’s Horsemen.

Back by popular demand after a very successful display two years ago, The Devil’s Horsemen will also bring one of the horses which played the lead role in the blockbuster “War Horse”.

Visitors can watch a demonstration of how horses are trained for a career and will be able to meet ‘Joey’ and his handlers.

Other stars include the Meerkat Massive, a troop of cuddly meerkats, and the Clwyd Axemen, who demonstrate tree felling with a difference.

There will be calf and sheep shows, sheep shearing, a farmers’ and craft market, horse riding displays, tours of the college zoo and a fun dog show.

Visitors can enjoy cheese tasting, gardening demonstrations, adventure sports, engineering activities and displays from smallholders.

Youngsters will also enjoy an old time funfair, miniature train rides, face painting and ice cream.

Reaseheath students will be raising money for their RAG (raising and giving) appeal, in aid of the Oliver King Foundation, a charity which raises awareness of a heart condition in young people.

Organiser Faye Thomson-Butt said: “We have planned an exciting programme to celebrate Reaseheath’s 90th year.

“All areas of the college will be open for families to explore. This is a great opportunity for the public to see Reaseheath at its best.”

The festival is on Sunday May 13,  10am to 5pm. Family tickets are £15; adult £5; children / concessions £4; under threes free.
