The Big Coronation Picnic – 2pm on Sunday 7th May
A Coronation Celebration party and Big Picnic at the Recreation Ground
Come and join the celebrations in Lytchett Matravers
We are looking forward to seeing everyone #UpOnTheRec for a great afternoon of relaxed fun and entertainment.
Its going to be a fun packed afternoon to come together as a village, with entertainment for all ages.
All you need to do is turn up. Bring a picnic and a comfy chair. We will have the traditional straw bales and big tent, but you can bring your own gazebo too.
As with all festivals, we have musicians and entertainers from the village who will perform across the afternoon. There will be singing and dancing from 2pm, kicking off with a welcome from Chris Manning and his band, followed by a special music and movement entertainment session for 0 to 5’s with Moo Music, with more bands, singers and music across the afternoon. Attractions include:
- Central stage with live Music featuring the villages own Frayed Strings Ukelele band, Gerry’s Life in the Past Lane and the wonderfully talented Holly-Jay, all brought together and hosted by Chris Manning and his great Swing & Soul band.
- Fully licensed pop-up bar from the Rose & Crown at the Sports Pavilion
- Family area by the Village Hall will include a bouncy castle, face-painting, crown-making and train-rides and extra Moo-Music fun.
- Stalls will include cakes, celebration chocolates and snacks
There is still time – if you would like to set up a stall that you think would be relevant for the afternoon, please do get in touch.
