'Picnic in the Park' on Sunday 2nd July 2017. Summer has finally arrived!! What an afternoon of glorious sunshine, good food, great music and a fantastic crowd who sang and danced along to a Summer afternoon of family entertainment.


Warley Woods Community Trust puts on the 'Picnic In the Park' every summer, and best of all it is totally free to come along and join in the fun.


Again this year, Bearwood Promoters curated the music stage on behalf of the Trust, and this year Trustee, Chris Ashford took the MC spot and made it his own for the day.

A MASSIVE thanks to all the volunteers and everyone who supported us to make the event possible, especially the bands who made such a fantastic soundtrack to to the day, getting people up to dance to some great music.


A Big thank you to everyone who turned up on the day and had a great time in the 'Woods', and also to Barclay Bear, who came along to close the day and to meet the youngsters.
