Classic cars, monkey dads and perfect pies await you at Trentham this Father’s Day, Sunday 17 June

Transport Festival this Father’s Day at Trentham Gardens

One of the UK’s most diverse days out, Trentham Estate on the edge of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, has lined-up some very special Father’s Day delights for Sunday, 21st June. If your dad has an appetite for all things automotive, make sure he’s in pole position for this year’s Transport Festival. As the gentlemen start their engines, take in the sights, sounds and smells of a fleet of more than 1,100 classic, contemporary and rare cars, set against the spectacular backdrop of the award-winning Trentham Gardens. A special event with pricing that includes garden admission, the Transport Festival has become an annual favourite for thousands of visitors - as well as giving motoring enthusiasts a Father’s Day to remember. If you can tear yourself away from the show cars, the Transport Festival also boasts club stands, an autojumble and trade stands. For dads who love adventure, and more importantly have a head for heights, visit Trentham Estate’s Aerial Extreme and go on a spectacular journey together, climbing through the Trentham woodland. As a special Father’s Day treat, dads go FREE* with every paying child on Sunday 21st June. Some of the monkeys at Trentham Monkey Forest became dads themselves recently and you can find out all about them at a special dad’s event on Sunday. Take a walk on the wild side with the 140 Barbary macaques which call Trentham their home. Guides along the path will give you information on the monkey dads as well as giving hourly feeding talks explaining the monkey antics. For those looking for the perfect gift, an Annual Ticket for Trentham Gardens will create lots of happy memories this Father’s Day and beyond. Annual tickets provide year round access to the award-winning gardens at Trentham and also include discounts on event tickets and at selected shops and cafes. And if you’re a bargain hunter, remember that Tesco Days Out Tokens can be used against the cost of Annual Tickets for Adult, Child and Concession tickets, so a £10 Reward Token can be exchanged for £40 Days Out tokens! Trentham Shopping Village is perfect for special and unpredictable presents. Even if you set out with no idea what to get your Dad for Father’s Day, a trip to Trentham will come up trumps…
