Mr Bloom comes to Chorley’s Picnic in the Park

Thursday, 19th May 2016

Pack up your picnics and head to Chorley’s Astley Park on Sunday 26 June for an afternoon of free fun and entertainment as Mr Bloom from CBeebies heads to the town’s annual Picnic in the Park event.

Chorley Council has teamed up with Rock FM to bring a fantastic family stage show to Astley Park with performances from Mr Bloom, children’s entertainers, top local bands, singers, and a surprise guest from a popular television reality contest as well as face painters and balloon modellers.

The fun starts at 12 noon and will also feature interactive activities for children including circus workshops, sports, games, orienteering challenges, arts and crafts, meet the animals of Pets Corner and not forgetting the opportunity to explore Astley Hall and the exhibitions in Astley Farmhouse.

Councillor Peter Wilson who is responsible for events at Chorley Council, said: “We’re really excited to bring Mr Bloom from CBeebies and the other exciting acts and entertainers to Astley Park and we’d like as many families as possible to come and join us.

“Picnic in the Park is a fantastic event and we’ve planned lots of activities throughout the afternoon, including two performances from Mr Bloom, a surprise guest from one of television’s reality talent contests and some great up and coming bands.  There will also be lots of other great activities for everyone to have a go at, including some brilliant circus workshops.

“Come rain or shine, there will be lots going on between 12 noon and 5pm to keep the little ones entertained, so pack up your picnic goodies and come and sing and dance along to Rock FM’s family stage show.”

Anyone driving to Picnic in the Park is being encouraged to be considerate of the residents of Astley Village and either park at Woodlands car park on Southport Road and use the Ackhurst Lodge entrance to Astley Park or park at one of the town centre car parks, which are free on Sundays and are only a short walk from the Park Road or Queens Road entrances to Astley Park. Hallgate car park will be open for blue badge holders only.

Picnic in the Park is just one of the many events organised by Chorley Council to give local people and visitors a great day out in Chorley.  For more inspiration and ideas for a great day out, check out Chorley’s new online visitor information centre, checkoutchorley.com
