A FUN-FILLED day of activities is set to get Bromsgrove’s creative juices flowing this weekend.

Following on from the success of Creative Art’s family paint days at Avoncroft Museum over the Easter holidays, the team are back to put on a range of activities at ‘pARTy in the park’ on Saturday, June 18.

Nigel Clark, lead singer and bassist of Dogy, singer and guitarist Max Stockin and activities including juggling, face painting and a giant tortoise display are set to take over Sanders Park.

The Friends of St John's are also opening the doors of the church and the doors to the tower, for a showcase day.

The event will be used to launch a new website and give details about the next fundraising project for the Friends of St John’s – the Save Our Spire Appeal.

Running alongside the website development will be a competition to encourage art submissions in any media, portraying St John's.

Jo Slade, chairman of Friends of St John's, said "We are excited to be working in collaboration with the team at Creative Arts.

“With Sanders Park and St John's Church in such close proximity, we encourage people to call into both events and enjoy the different activities at each location.

“We're hoping for a clear day so that those who climb the tower will be able to see the activities in the park from the parapets!"

Dee Hirst from Creative Arts said: “Isn’t it amazing when you get the chance to enjoy two free shows in one day, within a short walk from each other!”

The day is being held thanks to funding from the North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration “Recovery Through Creativity" Grant Scheme, supported by Bromsgrove District Council and Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP (GBSLEP), which aims to regenerate the local area following the pandemic.
