Family Fun Day Events
Zumba with Charlotte Searle – 2pm
Charlotte worked as a professional dancer for 12 years and now teaches Zumba dance classes in Brookburn Primary School and Chorlton Irish Club on a regular basis. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s probably the best way to get fit and have fun at the same time. An energetic dance to a fusion of latin and international music, and anything goes! Suitable for all shapes, sizes and fitness levels – why not give it a try at our Family Fun Day. Meet us on the Green at 2pm
Mazazik Arabic Dancers – 3pm
They wowed us last year with their energy and passion and are back again in a celebration of colour and vibrancy. A real crowd pleaser, join in for maximum fun or simply breathe in the atmosphere and enjoy the spectacle. Local classes are held in Chorlton Irish Club for converts – I might just see you there…
Open Voice Choir – 4.15pm
We close performances on Chorlton Green with The Open Voice Choir. They sing a cappella, and always round off the Fun Day with style and grace. A warm and friendly group, welcoming to new members of any ability – it’s an opportunity to let go and sing sing sing.
Little Belters 1pm
We are incredibly pleased to bring Little Belters to the Fun Day – they are a knock out! Created especially for 5-11 year olds, they are more than just a choir or singing group - click here to see what I mean. Taught by professional singers, the children learn correct singing technique and perform pop, indie, reggae folk and everything in between, with high energy and lots of fun. Little Belters have performed at the Manchester Marathon, Manchester Cathedral and have also appeared on CBBC’s Friday Download.
Banat Egyptian Dancers 12.30 and 4pm
Banat (the Arabic word for ‘sisters’) have bee dancing together for 15 years and they perform all over the North West. With an Egyptian style, they draw on influences from other Middle Eastern countries. Loving dance for the health and social benefits as well as dressing up in gorgeous clothes and having lots of fun.
Activities in the Park
Potting & Planting
With materials provided by Chorlton Nursery, we will be helping little ones plant up seedlings to take home and watch grow, for a small fee. A lovely introduction into growing your own.
We Are Adventurers
Come and meet the team behind We Are Adventurers. With workshops, pre-school groups and holiday clubs, they love to inspire children through adventure and the great outdoors. Come and say hello and see what they get up to.
Unity Arts Circus Skills
Roll up, roll up, roll up! Unity Arts have been in partnership with Beech Road Family Fun Day for years. This year they bring their popular Circus Skills Workshop to the Park.
Small Fairground Rides
All the fun of the fair. If the little ones are craving butterflies in the tummy and trampolines then our collection of small fairground rides should fit the bill. Complete with flashy lights and music it definitely adds a dash of excitement to their day.
We’re even keeping some green space free for you to bring your own picnic – and we’re hoping to have picnic blankets for hire! There are lite bites and drinks available in the park too, so why not stay and play a while? Alcohol free.
Watch this space for further details.
