Channel 5 to launch first ever ‘5 on the Farm’ festival in Yorkshire on August Bank Holiday Weekend

Yorkshire will be put on the map this summer as a key destination for a UK staycation and day out, thanks to a major new outdoor festival from Channel 5 TV.

The ‘5 on the Farm’ three-day outdoor festival will take place at Barnsley’s Cannon Hall Farm, home of Channel 5’s hugely popular ‘This Week on the Farm’ show, on 28th, 29th and 30th August 2021, with presenters Helen Skelton, JB Gill and Jules Hudson set to host across the weekend.

The festival will be packed full of activities that all ages can enjoy – especially families who are looking to keep young ones entertained this summer!

Billed as an activity-packed perfect day out or weekend staycation for UK families and visitors of all ages, visitors can step into the world of Channel 5’s best-loved shows.

They can expect the opportunity to attend celebrity panels and Q&As, watch live demos, take part in a host of making, baking and countryside activities, meet the animals and see their favourite stars perform throughout the weekend.
