Cllr Chris Watts, Chair of South Swindon Parish Council, writes a monthly column for Swindon Link.

The Parish Council Chair details some of the events that members of the public can look forward to this year:


Enchanted Gardens Light Trail

I am delighted to announce the return of the Enchanted Gardens Light Trail in the Town Gardens this December. Following the success of last year’s event, where we £25,000 raised for Brighter Futures, the Light Trail is back!

The Town Gardens will be filled with light and colour every night for the whole month to get families into the festive spirit.


Big Jubilee Lunch in Queen’s Park

On 5 June the Parish hosted a Big Jubilee Lunch at Queen’s Park to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. With live music alongside arts and crafts, it was great to see everyone come out and celebrate in the park.


Theatre in the Bowl

We have a fantastic summer of theatre in the Town Gardens Bowl coming up! Following the success of our theatre events in 2021 at the Town Gardens Bowl, I am thrilled to announce the return of Theatre in the Bowl in 2022!

We are also excited to launch our first ever season of Music At The Bowl, kicking off with the My Dad's Bigger Than Your Dad music festival on 16 July, which will be raising money for Prospect Hospice. We also have Voodoo Rooms on 23 July and 21st Century Abba on 29 August

Please visit our dedicated websites for more information on these events: |
