Our popular annual community event runs from 10.30am to 4pm at Kingswood Park, High Street, Kingswood BS15 9TR and provides a variety of attractions for young people and family members. The entertainment on offer includes fairground rides, a selection of live music acts, performers and dancers, plus you can get involved in circus skills workshops, a range of sporting activities and a treasure hunt.

Family Fun Day event organiser George Kousouros said: “Come along to our fun day in Kingswood Park and enjoy a fantastic day out for all the family. There will be lots of superb entertainment taking place throughout the day with live music from some talented local musicians and entertainers as well as food stalls, face painting and nature activities including talks and demos from an owl expert.

“We hope to see as many people as possible and because this event takes place during the school holidays it is the perfect place to bring your children for a great day out.”

The entertainment on the main stage begins with a performance by the Dance South Gloucestershire Youth Dance Company. Also appearing on the main stage will be PocoDrom playing family music and songs inspired by nature, traditional Irish music group The Ceili, vintage dance troupe Must Dash, folk music from Mrs Price’s Parlour, the vocal harmonies of Cadbury Heath Choir and Stockwood Happy Notes Choir, plus the traditional sounds of wind instrumentalists Kingswood Winds.

Throughout the day there will be circus skills and drumming workshops and performances by entertainers for young people taking place in different areas of the park. There will also be fairground rides, storytelling for young children, arts and crafts and a Wild4Life Wild Zone with fun activities that explore the natural environment.

A new treasure hunt will be launched at the event to help families explore the park, starting out from the Friends of Kingswood Park’s stall. Following the event the treasure hunt map will be available to download from www.southglos.gov.uk/familyfunday for visitors to complete throughout the year.

In addition, there will be stalls with information about services the council and its partner organisations such as the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership provide to families in South Gloucestershire and where to go to receive further advice and support.

This year’s Family Fun Day has an oak theme to mark the 80th anniversary of Kingswood Park. Eight oak trees were planted in March, one for each decade of the park.

The event is aimed at the whole family, and helps build stronger communities by bringing people together to have fun and enjoy everything their local area has to offer.

Entry is free, but charges may apply to some activities.
