Most years we are involved to a greater or lesser degree with events in the Park. Family fun days with a variety of attractions for all ages are often seen during Summer months. We also like to see local young talent encouraged, for example local bands playing their music to a live audience.

If you are local and would like to showcase your talents, please contact us by email in the first instance; we may be able to help, we may not, but will do our best.
