We are delighted to announce that this month we will again be sponsoring Queens Park Day on Sunday 15th September – a continued event in our yearly calendar and this year celebrating 26 years as the main sponsor.
QUEENS PARK DAY is a traditional village fete with cake and jam competitions, donkey rides, a tug-of-war tournament, thrilling arena events – combined with twenty-first-century music-making, the candy-floss thrill of the fun fair and the delights of a street-food festival. There is over a hundred individual stalls offering an A to Z of tempting items, promoting good causes and spreading the word about local events.
There is genuinely something-for-everyone on the Day. This year we are really excited to be sponsoring the main arena for the Sheep Racing with rosettes for the winners.
So come and join us – bring the family and your friends and take a stroll down to this beautiful Park on SUNDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER from 12 noon to 5.30pm and be part of this local community event. Whether you want to learn ballet, play cricket, learn how to box, to keep bees or take up martial arts, the opportunity is here. For many, simply watching the entertainment on offer is enough. Past favourites have included, the remarkable Fanti contortionists, to Mr Alexander’s brand of magic and the regular high point of the fancy-dress dog show. For some, just sitting on a hay bale sipping Pimms while the world passes by is enough. The Community Performance stage to the Kensal Rise side of the café and the Bandstand provide wonderful showcases for local performers. Fingers crossed the weather will be good!
