The Wroughton Parish Council will be holding a family picnic event at the Weir Field to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.

The picnic event will be held at the Weir Field in Wroughton on Saturday, 4 June. 

The day's activities will run from 12.30pm - 4.30pm. 

The Jubilee picnic is free to enter, due to the Council being successful in its bid for some National Lottery Funds. 

The attractions on offer include:

  • A children's entertainer - Jacko and Nunkie
  • Live music from soul and jazz duo Royal Soul
  • Face painting
  • A fire engine
  • A police car
  • Children's story corner
  • Hot and cold refreshments
  • Immersive youth theatre
  • Parish Council photo booth
  • Dress-up competition
  • Meet the Children's Author event - featuring Steve Anthony and Hannah Dosanjh

The Parish Council's Community Projects and Grants Officer, Amanda Woodhead, said: "The Picnic in the Park will offer a fabulous opportunity for our residents to get together and celebrate the Platinum Jubilee."

Alongside the Picnic event, attendees will be able to follow the Wroughton Storywalk that is located just outside of the Weir Field at Willow-brook gardens. Attendees will be able to enjoy a royal themed story whilst walking around outdoors. 

This year's Storywalk is a bespoke tale, created by a local artist, who is also a trustee for the Wroughton Community Library at the Ellendune centre.

It will be available for the public to see for two weeks after its launch on 30 May.
