The Summer Garden Party at Graylingwell Park is a fantastic summer event that is guaranteed to make you smile! It is just one of those events with fantastic feel-good factor that leaves you loving life, community and Chichester.
This year, we already have over 50 stalls booked and there are loads of free activities for the family.
The Kids’ Village includes the bouncy castle, tractor rides, bouncy slide, sumo suit wrestling, pogo gladiator game, face painting, sports and play games, crafts and Monkey Music! That really is the kids sorted.
In the Arcade, you’ll find classics such as the crockery smash, runaway train, coconut shy! Bring your change and support the scouts and Chichester Community Development Trust!
There is also the Market which hosts local small businesses selling their goodies… so a great place for a browse! You’ll find a cross section of things from homewares and gifts to wine tasting and watercolour painting!
Sitting by the Arena, you will be entertained with music, karaoke and live mic, or enticed in to try out a range of different classes.
Nearby, you can put your dog through its paces on the agility course, watch demos and see if your pup can win one of the many dog show prizes including waggliest tail, fluffiest dog and fastest dog!
You can either bring a picnic to have on the beautiful grounds, or have a day off. In the Food market, you’ll be spoilt for choice with BBQ, hog roast, fish and chips, teas, salad bar and ice creams of course. And we mustn’t forget the beer tent!
So with free entry and so much fun to be had, we hope to see most of Chichester there!
