This, our fifth Family Fun Day, will have all the old favourite activities including face painting, bouncy castle, story telling and craft making for all the family to take part in. We are also hopeful that we will be having performances of St George and the Dragon, an interpretation of the traditional Mummer's play, plus music and all sorts of discovery activities to entertain and delight all the family – entry to the park is free of charge as are many of the activities.
Members of FoSGP raise funds to support this event in various ways throughout the year, all donations of either time or money are always very welcome indeed.
On the day there will be refreshments available at St George's Church just across Radford Avenue where there are also toilet facilities.
FoSGP comprise of a small band of unpaid volunteers who help to look after the park, weed it and tidy it up. We also put on various community events each year including being the only venue for the Kidderminster Arts Festival outside of the town centre and beyond the Ring Road. St George's Fun Day in the Park is now the Horsefair's premier annual community event.
St George's Day was declared at the first Synod of Oxford in 1222 and 23rd April was made a feast day in the kingdom of England from then on. We are having our 5th St George's Day in the Park but we are paying regard to a tradition that has existed in England for the past 792 years.
On Saturday 26th April 2014 where could be more fitting to celebrate this ancient feast than St George's the People's Park... the jewel of the Horsefair?
We hope you can join us - all are welcome – watch the FoSGP website for more information.
