Summer festivals prove a hit with families

Mansfield District Council prepares to end the summer holidays with a bang at its last summer festival on Carr Lane Park in Warsop on 27th August.

The event runs from 10am to 3pm and is packed with fun, free entertainment for all the family – including the dog!

More than 800 people attended the festival at Titchfield Park on 12 August, which was a huge success.

At Warsop, visitors can enjoy arena attractions including a bird of prey flying demonstration, multi-skills sports activities, circus skills workshops, mini dog shows and commentary from Mansfield 103.2.

There is also an opportunity to take part in arts and craft activities, handle critters at the meet the beasts stall, and get your face painted for free. If sports are your family’s thing, there will also be the chance to have a go on the BMX cycling track, take part in multi-skills sport sessions in the arena and climb the climbing wall.

The park will host a range of other activities including a hands-on recycling workshop, butterfly count, and a whole host of interactive and educational games, plus a chance to pick up some tips on looking after your dog.

Representatives from the council’s various departments and partners will also be available to answer questions and give advice, including members of the Your Dog Your Responsibility team, environmental health officers and members of Mansfield Partnership Against Crime (MPAC).

Parking on site may be very limited, so the public are advised to walk or use public transport if possible.

Cllr Andrew Tristram, Mansfield District Council’s Portfolio Holder for the Environment said: “This is the last of our free summer holiday events so families are invited to come along and enjoy a jam packed day of entertainment. Bring your friends and family for a great day out.”
