Picnic in the Park – Sunday 13th July 1pm – 6pm
We are hosting our 13th Picnic in the Park on Sunday 13th July – offering a full programme of events and activities for all the family. Everyone is invited to bring a Picnic and spend the afternoon in the sunshine and fresh air. Music starts at 1pm and runs until 6pm
There will be live music throughout the afternoon featuring local singers, bands and a local dance group: The line up includes: Simon Boswell, Jane James, Peter Hyde & Friends, Ethel Vince, Paul Miller and Mr Apollo, The Fidgets, The Strangest Feeling and All Hail Regale. The music has been organised by Bearwood Promoters in their third year contributing to this community event at Warley Woods.
There will be a range of children’s activities – lots of craft making opportunities as well as face painting, bouncy castles and golf games. The number of stalls and activities have been increased on previous years; so lots of crafts, food and gifts to browse. There will also be local charities tempting you with tombolas and cakes. The Trust will have a bookstall, samosas, games and their own tombola to help raise money for the maintenance of Warley Woods. The Warley Woods regulars the Warley Woods Pacers (runners) and Kickstart Bootcamp will be offering fun activities. For those who don’t want the fuss of making their own picnic, or if they forget it – there will be food available so no-one will go hungry.
For the four legged park visitors, there is the dog show – anyone can bring their canine friend to enter. Classes include the dog that looks most like its owner and the waggiest tail. This year’s sponsor – Companion Care Vets of Oldbury has taken special charge of helping with the dog show, so there will be excellent prizes along with special categories for their customers.
Many thanks to Bearwood Promoters for organising the music and Companion Care Vets, Oldbury for sponsoring the whole event for the third year.
