FAMILIES can mosey on down to a Northumberland farm attraction for some rootin’ tootin’ wild west fun.

There’ll be plenty of shenanigans going on at Whitehouse Farm Centre, near Stannington, for the school half-term week.

Colourful characters will be in abundance, with staff dressing as cowboys, indians and the sheriff and his posse, and customers too are encouraged to come in costume, with fancy dress competitions running twice daily.

There’ll be western themed games, with prizes to be won, magic shows and line-dancing, while budding prospectors can pan for ‘gold’ at the Whitehouse Mine and receive a certificate if they find any.

Visitors can also enjoy all the usual fun of the farm, with lots of animals to feed, hold and stroke. It will be the final week for bottle-feeding the lambs and there will be meerkat feeding and talks, beastie shows and birds of prey displays.

Children can visit the Farmer’s Den soft-play barn and adventure playground, or try out go-karting, trampolining, frisbee golf, racing cars, tractor trailer rides, a willow maze and a bouncy castle.

The Wild West Week runs from Saturday and the centre is open daily from 10am to 5pm. For more information visit,
