Family Fun Day - With A Difference

Wednesday 24th March

Come and join the party, on Saturday 27th March, at Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Centre, Marlborough Road, Bedford, from 2-6pm. This is an exciting event which celebrates the rich diversity of the borough. It’s in the Mayor of Bedford Borough’s diary, and he will be attending from 2 – 3pm.

Bedfordshire’s New Migration Partnership and Bedford Borough’s Queen’s Park Neighbourhood Centre have teamed up with a host of other partners to deliver a fun-packed afternoon of family entertainment, performances and foods from across the world.

Family fun on the day includes an: ice-rink, bouncy castles, magic shows and balloon-sculpting. Performances include: World Poetry, African Drumming, Asian Dance, Polish Song and Dance, Italian Performers and Street Dance. World Foods, for tasting on the day, will include: Asian, Italian, Eastern European, African and Vegan and raw foods.

There will be lots of opportunities during the event for new migrants to talk about, and record, their experiences of settling in the Borough, both through a video booth and an art competition. The event will also provide migrant families with opportunities to access information, support and advice from a range of service providers. Free health checks for those aged 40-75 will also be available throughout the day.

This event is an excellent example of how strong partnership working across organisations and departments can lead to fantastic results for local communities

and families.
