Picnic in The Park Party 2012

Picnic in the Park 2012

Godmanchester’s Picnic in the Park party is being held on Sunday 8th July this year on the recreation ground between The Causeway and Portholme over the Chinese bridge.

If you like a large garden party then Picnic in the Park is for you with live music, games, rides and bouncy things to keep the kids entertained, a beer tent, ice cream vans and barbecues.

Last year the weather was great and fingers crossed this year will be just as good. The Picnic in the Park party always wraps up Gala Week in Godmanchester. Great community fun for all of Godmanchester.

For more information on the other events taking place during Gala Week have a look at the Godmanchester Community Association website.
