James Tea Cook says "The Pirates of The Carob Bean intended theme, be getting yer rapscallions and kiddywinks to be eating more vegetables At least 5 portions of veg a day choosing one from each colour of the rainbow and learning the difference about good fats and wholefoods, but in a fun way. So apart from the dancing, the singing, the jokes, the VegfestUK fruit smoothie bike, the kid's cookery workshops where we makes Rainbow sushi, pancakes, kebabs, snack balls, wraps and stacks and the kitchen science where we finds electricity in bananas, learns about emulsification and alkalinity we also has a few rainbow games.

All-day games include Rainbow Ring Toss, 5 Veg in Bucket, Rainbow Veggie Tin Can Alley, Snakes and ladders, Rainbow Twister there also be some crafts. These include High 5 Rainbow Hands, Potato friends, and Pirate Hat making - if you are lucky some seed planting too. Collect 10 metal cans, crush them, bin them and get a free go on the smoothie bike.

All day fun but it's not a crèche so you will have to stay responsible adult for your kids.
There is usually lots of shouting, (because Capt James Tea Cook is a little bit deaf) If your child prefers something quieter please seek out the pirate games tent, magic shows , hula hooping and bubble juggling.
