2018 Summer Festival

The 3rd Summer Fun Day that Friends of Onchan Park have organised with Gedling Borough Council for Oakdale Road Recreation Ground will have a festival vibe with displays, stalls, body art and much more!
There will be fun for all the family with refreshments, pocket money stalls, bouncy castle and performances from local groups throughout the afternoon.
2.15-3.00pm Tommy Thompson’s School Of Boxing (Netherfield)
3.05-3.25pm Nottingham Community Youth Choir Sneinton
3.30-3.50pm OMAC-UK Martial Arts (Gedling)
3.55-4.15pm The Rose Singers of Gedling
4.20-4.45pm The Stanley School of Irish dance
The friends group will hold an information stall with details about fundraising projects for the table tennis and the ongoing MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) project. Input from the community is very important in the planning stage of these projects and securing support from the local community is vital before preparing funding bids.
Dave from The Bank Inn at Netherfield is providing hot food, alcoholic and soft drinks. There will be a cake stall, ice cream van and candy floss stall with plenty of seating to rest at.
The children will enjoy exploring the park with the treasure hunt, playing guessing games and free crafts. Popular face painting and henna tattoo stalls will add to the festival vibe. You could take a selfie using fun props in the photo booth.
As always, the tennis court will be available to play on. The other court will showcase free petanque with the Nottingham City Petanque club. The play park will be open as normal and the top gate will be open, providing level access to the bowling green for the stalls and performances.
New Events Coordinator Valeria Puddu is really looking forward to her first Summer Fun Day as Onchan Park Events Committee Chair. 

It should be a great (football free!) afternoon for all the family, old and young alike, to join in the festival atmosphere at the local park.
