Local people are invited to grab a picnic and enjoy an afternoon of music and games in Congleton Park as part of the Queen’s 70th Jubilee celebrations on Thursday 2 June. The fun is from 1pm-5.30pm with the Encores playing 50s and 60s music to start and finishing with Audley Brass Band playing rousing tunes!
Rachel McCarthy, Congleton Town Council’s Town Centre and Events Officer said: “The Signal 1 Radio Roadshow will entertain the crowds with music, competitions, prizes, giveaways and much more! Elizabeth’s Group will put on a fabulous Punch and Judy show, the local RSPCA group is running a Dog Show and there’s a chance to join in traditional games and crafts. Entry is free and there will be a chance to buy food and drink from stalls offering tasty afternoon tea treats. We hope the people of Congleton will join together to celebrate the Queen’s historic milestone in the beautiful surroundings of Congleton park.”
Mill Green and Park Road will be closed to traffic, with access for residents only. There will be limited disability parking at the end of Park Road.
