Family Fun Day @ Crow Nest Park

Sunday 4 June 2017, 11am – 4pm

Opening at 11 am with Crafty Devilz and a range of rides for children – not forgetting the popular Giant Bouncy Slide – the day will offer workshops at 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm in Bhangra dancing, Dhol drumming and mask making with a parade around the Park at 3pm for everyone to display their skills. Expect to see a stilt-walker among the crowds this year and watch out for those Giant Crow Puppets that have been turning up in the Park recently. For the adventurous, there will be another innovation this year – a climbing wall.

Don’t miss local artist Malcolm E.G. East who is mounting display of his paintings in the Wildflower Garden and will be available to talk about his work and sign books.

And there will be the usual stalls laid on by the Friends of Crow Nest Park.

This event celebrates progress towards our goal of taking over the former Museum building in Crow Nest Park and reopening it as a centre for the community. 

Brought to the wonderful communities of Dewsbury by The Friends of Crow Nest Park, Callaloo Carnival Arts, The Friends of Dewsbury Park Mansion, and a fantastic team of local volunteers!
