It was another sunny Saturday for the second Barnard Park pop-up with live music and loads of activities for kids. Our partner Barnard Adventure Playground offered its own special brand of fun. On the green, children were enchanted with Mr Bubbles and his bubble extravaganza. There were bouncy castles for small fry jumping and a bike to create spin art. Kids made pots with Pauline from Happy Pots.
Oxjam hosted live music throughout the day. Amberleigh Drummers were a percussion hit. There was dance from Afrobeats and the Young Actors Theatre. Les and Tina bought mellow sounds from the Cally Road. From Oxjam, performers included Graham Jones, Patty Paige, Unique Technique and the Argonauts.
For flower lovers, there were self-guided tours of the park’s three volunteer garden areas included in the Open Garden Squares Tour.
All in all, it was a fab day for 300 plus children and adults. Families enjoyed a relaxed afternoon picnicking across the park. See you next year!
