Grab a slice of family fun this summer

Published on Wednesday, 12th July 2017 in Council news news

Rotherham Town Centre and Clifton Park will be hosting entertainment and activities this July and August with six days of free family fun.

‘A Slice of Summer Fun’ returns for its third year with fun and activities from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

Starting with ‘Pirates and Princesses’ on Wednesday 26 July, children are invited to put on their eye patches and crowns and take to the town centre for a day which will include princess classes, a pirate-themed show, craft activities and more.

Then, on Saturday 29 July ‘Animal Magic’ returns with some fantastic animal-themed activities including a petting farm, crafts, sheep rodeo and the chance to handle some more exotic creatures from Nature Safari.

A Slice of Summer Fun moves to Clifton Park for three days from Tuesday 8 August until Thursday 10 August for Clifton-by-the-Sea with entertainment and activities each day alongside the existing water splash area, sandpit, mini golf, skate-park and children’s rides. For those wanting a slightly more relaxing time there are free deckchairs for that real seaside feel!

Wands at the ready for the last day of A Slice of Summer Fun on Saturday 12 August as ‘Wonderfully Wizardly’ flies into town with a brilliant magic show, walkabouts, crafts, Grimm & Co. and even the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter.

Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Working and Cultural Services, Cllr Taiba Yasseen, said, “A Slice of Summer Fun is a great opportunity for families to come along and enjoy some brilliant free activities and entertainment during the summer months and hopefully the weather will be kind to us too.”  

Visitors to Rotherham can take advantage of two hours free parking in the red zone of Forge Island car park on weekdays, or park free all day at Forge Island at weekends.
