There is Something For Everyone at the Barony Campus Open Day!



Get ready for a family day filled with fun and adventure at the SRUC Barony Campus Open Day! Taking place on Sunday 29 May, the popular annual event promises hands-on activities, full-on fun and exciting displays to watch, as well as delicious refreshments including afternoon teas.

The Barony Campus Open Day is designed around the unique activities, facilities and subjects that students use at the Campus. It’s a family day out for all ages with highlights including dog agility shows, which run several times throughout the day, and the opportunity to get up close to numerous small furry animals and reptiles with our Animal Care team.

Talking ahead of the Open Day, Phoebe Caygle, a current NC Animal Care student, said: “At this year’s handling session in the animal care centre there will be many interesting animals on display including snakes, skinks, bearded dragons, sugar gliders and lots of small furries.

“We are all really looking forward to the Open Day and welcoming all visitors to the event. Last year was an amazing day and this year will be even better.”

Other activities to enjoy are tractor and trailer rides, bird ringing, pony rides and machinery displays.

For school leavers or people thinking of a career change, information about training and courses at SRUC will be available. People who are interested in short courses are also invited to find out more at the open day.

Barony Campus Open Day takes place on Sunday 29 May from 1pm-5pm.  Admission is £5 per car; all proceeds go to the South of Scotland Wildlife Hospital.
