If you are in a band, group or a choir with family members – don’t worry, you don’t all have to be related – and you live in South Gloucestershire or have a family connection to the area then we want to hear from you. Our competition winners will get the chance to perform at our Family Fun Day event in May alongside several leading acts and musicians from the area, so make sure you enter our competition by Wednesday 1 May.

You can enter by emailing digital@southglos.gov.uk here you can leave a brief description of your group/act, along with a photograph and a link to a website where we can hear your music/performances (Myspace, Youtube, Soundcloud etc). If possible please try to link to a clip of a live performance. Simply visit our competition page on our website www.southglos.gov.uk/familyfunday for more details.

To qualify, band members must have a family connection such as featuring brothers and sisters, cousins, grandparents, aunties and uncles or a combination of father and daughter for example, amongst the line-up. Not all members of the group need to be related, you just need some kind of family link amongst your band or choir.

Our popular annual event runs from 10.30am to 4pm at Kingswood Park, High Street, Kingswood and provides a variety of entertainment for families, with a selection of live music acts, face painting, street art displays and food stalls to enjoy.

There will also be a variety of stalls with information about what services the council and its partner organisations such as the NHS provide to families in South Gloucestershire and where to go to receive further advice and support.

Tying in with National Family Week which runs from 27 May to 2 June, 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.

Family Fun Day event organiser George Kousouros said: “Come along to our fun day in Kingswood Park and enjoy a great day out for the whole family. There are lots of great activities planned throughout the day with live music from some talented musicians as well as entertainers, food stalls and face painting. If you are in a band or a choir you can even enter our Fam Jam competition and be in with a chance to perform on the day!

“There will also be a variety of stalls with information about what services we offer to families and where to go to receive further advice and support. We hope to see as many people as possible and because this event falls during the school holidays it is the perfect place to enjoy a great day out.”
