FISHPONDS will be joining in the celebrations for Make Sunday Special on September 11 in Fishponds Park and along Beechwood Road.
Organisers have arranged a full day’s line up of entertainment starting at noon.
A market along Beechwood Road will host stalls from several local businesses and crafters, including jewellery, arts and produce.
Live music on the stage in the park will be provided by a number of bands. These include Hey Bulldog, who will play a set from the 60s & 70s, the ocal Riff Raff choir, Red Ray & The Reprobates playing their unique mix of modern country music delivered with toe-tapping panache, and George & the Dragons, a local jazz/fusion band.
For the children, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club will run some activities. Face painting, magicians, chalk games and circus skills will also be on offer.
Refreshments will include the 197th Scouts providing a barbecue, Dayzeeks serving up Jamaican food, and The Star with their Star Bar.
Spokesman Sam Teller said: “ The team organising this event is made up of local residents and artists who live and work in Fishponds. We feel Fishponds in the perfect place for a Make Sunday Special event as it is such an interesting and vibrant place to live and work and has so much energy and talent. It will be a fun-filled day for all the family and is open to everyone.”
