Graves Park Animal Farm will have a range of activities on offer for all the family, including bouncy castles, talks from farmers, ferret racing, the chance to sit in a tractor and an opportunity to meet the animals.

South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue will also be making an appearance on the day.
