A feast of free food and entertainment for all to enjoy. Gather around the bandstand or relax in a deckchair for a special afternoon of song, dance, games and creativity in Weston’s glorious Grove Park. Including local choirs, singers from UHBW NHS Foundation Trust, St George’s Bristol, the middle eastern Hazir Ensemble, Turkish and Chinese dancing, Carboot Disco Bingo, hula-hooping and more, there are sounds and experiences from near and far for everyone to enjoy.
Lose yourself in audio installations, paint our Global Mural, or create a poem with the amazing Poetry Machine….the pace of this park life is up to you.
