Spring is here, and there’s no better way to celebrate than by visiting some cute new arrivals at Wimpole Home Farm.

Lambing time has fallen a little later than usual, and will run until next Sunday, April 24.

Visitors are invited to get into the ‘spring’ of things by watching the new born lambs, and learning about the life of sheep.

There is also the possibility that guests will witness the birth of one of Wimpole’s rare breed sheep.

Visits will be running every day between 10.30am and 5pm, until next Sunday, April 24.

Tickets are £11 for adults and £5.50 for children, and free for all National Trust members.

Children can also have a go at being a young farmer when they visit home farm, by grooming donkeys, driving a mini tractor and trying their hand at milking.

As well as visiting the fluffy arrivals and learning to become a farmer, there’s plenty to do at Wimpole, with shire horse courses, cycling rides, a sponsored dog 
walk and a spring concert to be held next Friday, April 22.

The evening of music will feature historical musicians Blast 
from the Past in Wimpole’s Long Gallery. The group perform as musicians, as well as actors, story-tellers and street entertainers. Booking is essential and tickets cost £20.
