Where can we go this weekend?
Fancy a day out which is guaranteed fun for all the family?
Hopefully the weather will be as good as todays at Thingwall Hall, Broadgreen Saturday 7th June 11am-3pm and you will be transported through an unforgettable International journey of fun and entertainment.
The day’s packed full of activities which not only keep you and your family entertained but will also get you thinking about global issues, languages and taking up a healthier lifestyle.
This is an event that will surely be fun for all.
The Heritage Festival this weekend will be centrally located at Thingwall Hall Broadgreen, 11am -3pm. This is a spectacular location in the community and organised for the community.
A few months ago during the planning meetings, it took me ages to find the Hall, thinking like many people that it had burned down or was owned by Ken Dodd and a private dwelling, but no, there it was not far from Broadgreen Hospital, on a lovely green landscaped site perfect for the Festival.
Bus routes 202 and 139 between Pilch Lane and the Hospital.
It’s free to attend and everyone’s welcome. We’ve got some good entertainment lined up for the day such as ‘Bring the Fire Project’, Reef’s Reptiles, always a must for the kids, international stalls and workshops, community choirs with plenty of singing and dancing, a BBQ, international food stalls, face painting, Tai Chai, birds of prey and lots more fun for all the family to enjoy.
There will be plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied and Reef’s Reptiles already mentioned, have a variety of invertebrates including snakes, spiders and lizards for everyone to handle and learn about under the supervision of trained experts.
Last weekend at the Speke Festival they had an endless line of youngsters wishing to handle and be photographed with these exotic creatures.
Pop Larkin’s Birds of Prey’s are on display with fully qualified Falconers showing off their bird handling skills and exotic birds of prey, all for you to handle and photograph. They will also be enabling both adult and children to see, touch and learn about all the different birds of prey in their education programme.
Taste the food delights of the Congo, India, Peking and Eastern Europe from the many food stalls around the site.
Try your hand at one of the many dance workshops or join in the Tai Chai group as they meditate and step in unison to their hypnotic magical sounds.
Listen to the Congolese drumming and join in the workshop sessions.
Meet friendly characters and sample some of their deliciously tasty treats before you venture into the unforgettable gardens of Summerhill Garden Centre and purchase a bargain from the tantalizing plant offers, all grown in the ‘on site’ greenhouses.
So, for music, food and entertainment this Sarturday, venture down to the local Thingwall Hall and have a great day both indoors and out at our beautiful Thingwall Hall.
Despite the weather predictions, we are prepared for all with both indoor and outdoor entertainment!
