Family fun day at Victoria Park
The second Family Day in Victoria Park will take place on Sunday 13 May from 10:30am to 4pm, following the success of last year's event.
There will be entertainment throughout the day, which will include traditional Punch & Judy shows, face painting, Morris Dancing with the ‘Garston Gallopers’, dancing and singing on the Bandstand with the Ragtime Theatre School, Dr G’s Big Band and the Royal Wootton Bassett Brass band playing in the afternoon. Kennet Radio will be there broadcasting live from the event.
Newbury Town Council has recently purchased six new pedalos (using developer contribution monies) as the existing ones were over 8 years old and beyond their useful life. The pedalos and kayaks, hired out by the kiosk, have proved to be very popular over the years and they will be available to hire from the kiosk on the Family Day.
Cllr Adrian Edwards, Leader of Newbury Town Council said: “We are very proud of Victoria Park and the transformation it has undertaken in the last couple of years. The facilities are now of the highest quality and we are excited to be showing them off at our Family Day, so come along, bring a picnic and enjoy the fun – what’s more, it’s all for free!”
