Our ever-popular free Lark in the Park sponsored by Hollies Day Nurseries took place on Wednesday August 2 2023 featuring over 50 fantastic stalls and attractions at Bridgford Park in West Bridgford from 10am to 4pm.

The annual free event brought an array of activities with an inflatable fun zone, soft play, storytelling and sports sessions from the National Ice Arena, Nottingham Rugby and West Bridgford Tennis Club.

This year’s entertainment programme featured free singing and dancing shows for children and young people featuring Super Sparkle, Jo Jingles, Dynamique Dance and Joker Entertainment.

Free sporting activities included soft play and football darts and children met their favourite game series characters Super Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach.

There was also food and drink stalls and charity and community stands, packed with useful freebies and information on a range
