SIX free days of family activities featuring rodeos, skate parks and wizards are coming to the town centre and Clifton Park.
The borough council’s A Slice of Summer Fun returns for its third year and kicks off on Wednesday, July 26, with the Pirates and Princesses event.
Children are invited to put on their eye patches and crowns and take to the town centre for a day which will include princess classes, a pirate-themed show, craft activities and more.
Animal Magic will then take over the town centre on Saturday, July 29, with animal-themed activities including a petting farm, crafts, sheep rodeo and the chance to handle some exotic creatures.
A Slice of Summer Fun moves to Clifton Park for three days from August 8 to 10 for Clifton-by-the-Sea with entertainment and activities each day next to the water splash area, sandpit, mini golf, skate park and children’s rides.
Free deckchairs will be set up to allow sun lovers to relax in style.
The last day of the event on August 12 is Wonderfully Wizardly at Grimm and Co on Doncaster Gate, which will feature a magic show, walkabouts, crafts, and the chance to see the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter up close.
All events run from 10.30am until 3.30pm.
RMBC’s cabinet member for neighbourhood working and cultural services, Cllr Taiba Yasseen, said: “A Slice of Summer Fun is a great opportunity for families to come along and enjoy some brilliant free activities and entertainment during the summer months and hopefully the weather will be kind to us, too.”
