Banbury Play Day Carnival Fun July-27-2016

Banbury Play Day Carnival Fun

The fun of the carnival will transform People’s Park for a day of inclusive fun and games as Banbury Play Day returns on 27 July.

As the world looks forward to the Rio Olympics, Banbury’s children can tap into the Brazilian spirit to discover carnival-themed arts, circus skills, sports and multicultural projects.

The day of fun is being run by a partnership of local agencies including Cherwell District Council.

Cllr George Reynolds, deputy leader for Cherwell, said:

“For this year’s Play Day we will be looking forward to the Rio Olympics by bringing the fun of the carnival to Banbury.

“Play Day offers an action-packed day of family fun. There are vigorous activities, such as those being run by Cherwell’s recreation and sport activators, alongside gentle and creative sessions provided by our local children’s centres and other partners.

“Banbury Play Day is a free way to entertain all the family, and I am encouraging families to bring a picnic if they want to make a day of it. The Rio Olympics are sure to have us all captivated in August, and Banbury Play Day is a wonderful way of helping us all get in the mood.”

The Play Day takes place in the second week of the summer holidays on 27 July from 11am to 3pm.

In addition to sport and games, children can have a dance with Banbury’s online community radio station, Puritans Radio, or have fun with the Play Rangers from the award-winning Banbury Play Bus team.

For those looking for more artistic fun there will be an outdoor arts area while the Sunrise Multicultural Project and local children’s centres will host additional activities. Furthermore, the Let’s Play charity will be providing inclusive activities for everyone.

The event is provided by the Cherwell Play Partnership group which comprises Cherwell District Council, Banbury Town Council, Oxfordshire County Council, Let’s Play, Sunrise Multicultural Play Project, Banbury Community Bus, Oxfordshire Play Association and The Sunshine Centre.
