Celebrate National Play Day at Sandwell Families Big Picnic

Go Play Sandwell and the Sandwell Families Big Picnic are back once again to celebrate National Play Day and all the family are invited to come along and enjoy a vast variety of entertainment.

Play Day and the Big Picnic, which has previously attracted families from across the area, is being held on the front lawn of Lightwoods House in Lightwoods Park, Adkins Lane, Bearwood, Wednesday 1 August between 11am and 3pm.

The annual event, being hosted by Go Play Sandwell and Sandwell’s Family Information Service, promises bigger and better activities than ever before. Councillor Simon Hackett, Sandwell Council's cabinet member for children’s services, said:

"This is a brilliant day for all of the family, and on top of that all the activities are free. I encourage parents and carers to come with their children and their picnics and enjoy the day."

Families are encouraged to come along and bring their picnics. Children can also enjoy the free activities which include den building, circus skills with Steve the Juggler, face painting, sporting activities, the Youth Bus, mobile library and much more.
