Pack up your picnics, gather family and friends and check out Chorley’s Astley Park for an afternoon of free fun and entertainment as Sid and Rebecca from CBeebies head to the town’s annual Picnic in the Park event.
Chorley Council has teamed up with Rock FM to bring a fantastic family stage show to Astley Park with performances from various acts including Sid and Rebecca from the CBeebies’ show Let’s Play, children’s entertainers, top local singers, as well as face painters, balloon modellers and more. This event is suitable for all the family.
On the day there will be lots of free fun including interactive activities for children like circus workshops, sports, games, arts and crafts, football challenges with Chorley Football Club, meet the animals of Pets Corner and not forgetting the opportunity to explore Astley Hall and the exhibitions in Astley Farmhouse.
Anyone driving to Picnic in the Park is being encouraged to be considerate of the residents of Astley Village and either park at Woodlands car park on Southport Road and use the Ackhurst Lodge entrance to Astley Park or park at one of the town centre car parks, which are free on Sundays and are only a short walk from the Park Road or Queens Road entrances to Astley Park. Hallgate car park will be open for blue badge holders only.
(Sunday) 12:00 am - 4:00 pm
