The Best Birthday Party of 2010 – this Sunday
COME AND CELEBRATE
This Sunday – the Arnold Circus Sharing Picnic 100
1pm-4pm : picnic, artists’ fair, music on the bandstand
4pm-5pm: alternative vehicle parade & cycle ride
Join in and celebrate the renovation and centenary of Arnold Circus. Bring your picnic and a dish to put on the sharing table. Be part of a special community picnic, with artists’ fair, music on the bandstand, 100 laps cycle ride & alternative vehicle parade.
We have joined with Home Live Art this year to provide an event to remember, the theme of sharing food and traditions, plus a closed-off road with stalls created by local artists, cooking demonstrations, artists’ food projects and the sharing table, an artists’ fair with participatory activities, installations and games and a bandstand music programme – brass bands, beat boxing, female rappers and more. The final challenge to cycle 100 times around the Circus will feature an extraordinary alternative vehicle parade by artists Francis Thorburn & Richard Elliott.
