Party In The Park
The Nuns Moor Park four-day circus spectacular finishes on a high, with a grand Party In The Park.
All are welcome at this family-friendly event which starts at midday and continues the big top carnival theme, with a number of circus skills workshops which can be joined up to on the day.
There will be live music from local talent and rising star, Kema Kay (of I, Daniel Blake fame). There will also be performances from a number of other local artists, including Kay Greyson, Rex Regis, Provident Band, Zombie Killers and the magnificent SHE Choir.
For the children, there will sports and games, organised by local charitable company Hat-Trick. There will be kite-making workshops, facepainting, balance bikes and a forest school. Craft stalls, food-growing sessions, free plants and ‘upcycling’ workshops will also be on offer. If you end up getting a little hungry with all that activity, the park’s outdoor pizza oven will be serving fresh food throughout the day.
Entry is free. Children must be accompanied adults.
The event has been organised by Greening Wingrove, with the help of scores of local volunteers from Arthur’s Hill, Fenham and Wingrove areas of the city. Local charities, CHAT Trust and Time Exchange have been centrally involved and the event has been supported by the Workers Educational Association (WEA), Lottery Fund and Newcastle City Council.
