CRT Village Show

Explore the CRT Village Showground!

#CRTVillageShow

We had to cancel all CRT farm open days due to lockdown, but we still wanted to find a different way to bring new and existing CRT Friends together and raise money for the charity!

At this time of year, our staff, farmers and volunteers would be on the road to see you in person at Farm Open Days and shows across the country. But lockdown has changed that this year.


#CRTVillageShow

All the fun of the show, from the safety of your home!

Online and at home activities to keep you and the children entertained and learning about the farming and nature! 

Education Manager Gerry Turner has been busy created these fun filled, curriculum-linked learning topics straight from the CRT classroom.

Growing money - fundraising

Support Rural Business

 

CRT supports rural communities and businesses by restoring old and disused farming properties into centres of sustainable business. 

These artisan businesses would normally be selling their beautiful items at shows across the country. This year, we are supporting these businesses by promoting them online at our CRT Village Show
