The Summer Garden Party

Summer Garden Party @ Graylingwell Park
Saturday 7 July 2018

The Summer Garden Party at Graylingwell Park is a fantastic free entry summer event for all – young and old! Come and join in on all the fun at this popular event with its fantastic feel-good factor that leaves you loving life, community and Chichester.


This year, we already have 55 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!


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 showcasing their unique products and services – things to taste, gifts to buy and charities and organisations to learn more about.


The Stage will offer entertainment and music and the Arena area will put on a show of different activities, some that you can try out for yourself.


There is also the popular dog show where you and your dog can have a go at the agility course, watch demos and see if you can win one of the many dog show prizes including waggliest tail, fluffiest dog and fastest dog!


Bring a picnic or pick something up from one of the many food stalls on offer. BBQ, hog roast, Fresh Thai food, pancakes and waffles, teas, salad bar and ice creams of course. And there will be a beer tent as well!


We hope to see you there!


The Summer Garden Party at Graylingwell Park raises funds for local scout groups and CCDT’s community programmes, such as our youth work and IT training (aimed at older people in the community).
