At Ramsbottom Civic Hall – 16th November Christmas Fair

These events are always really popular and there is so much to see and do that it’s a brilliant day out for the whole family. Our Event Days are a major event in the Bleakholt calendar. They are special days as we attempt to raise much needed funding to enable us to take care of all our animals. These events are even more important to us now than ever before as we battle to raise crucial funding for our future.

We never cease to be amazed by the support shown. If you’ve never been before then you are in for a treat!

The  Event Days at the Sanctuary run from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. (unless advertised) and admission is a donation of only £2 per person.

Look out for more details nearer the time and for more events being advertised.  Please come along and share the fun with us.
