Mansfield welcomes back festivalgoers to Wonderfest

Posted onPosted on 27th Aug

Titchfield Park hosted a one-day family event to welcome back up to 2,000 festivalgoers to Mansfield.

Wonderfest was the first major council-run event since November 2019.

Tickets were sold out for a fun day, packed with activities, performances, live music, have-a-go sports, pony rides, petting zoo, arts, crafts heritage and street food.

The highlight of the day was a free outdoor theatre show of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by the Chapter House Theatre Company.

Visitors were welcomed with goodie bags and Mansfield 103.2 provided a roadshow to keep the party atmosphere going.

Entertainment in the main event arena included bubble workshops and Alice in Wonderland-themed entertainment, while walkabout act the Steaming Brass Band blasted out funky tunes as they paraded around the park.

Andy Abrahams, the Mayor of Mansfield, said: “What a delight Wonderfest was for everyone who attended. I can’t put into words how truly fantastic it was to see so many people enjoying the festival atmosphere.

“After a difficult time during the pandemic, Mansfield District Council was very keen to work within the government guidelines to help get life moving again safely.

“The smiles on faces said it all, it was great to see people enjoying summer in Mansfield.”
