Sunny day for Aldershot's Playfest!

Hundreds of families enjoyed a sunny day of free games and activities in Aldershot town centre on Saturday as part of the town's first ever Playfest!

PlayFest! was organised by Rushmoor Borough Council and there were all sorts of free hands-on activities and workshops to try including circus skills, drumming, jazz dance, musical theatre and martial arts.

There were giant board games to play at The Games Shop in Wellington Street, slime making, brick-building and clay, craft, and messy play activities.

Councillor Liz Corps, Events and Civic Pride Cabinet Champion at Rushmoor Borough Council said: "What a fantastic day! The town centre was very busy and full of families enjoying the summer sun and all the amazing free activities on offer as well as the live music in the Princes Gardens community bandstand performed by Farnborough Concert Band.  We are already making plans for next year's event."

The event was also supported by Aldershot Library and Learning Centre, Community First Responders, Tatty Bumpkin Yoga, Splat Messy Play and the World Eagle Claw Association.

The council's next free town centre event will be the Dinosaur Invasion taking place in Aldershot town centre on Saturday 18 August and Farnborough town centre on Sunday 19 August.

Reggae Rex and amazing animatronic T-Rex will be stomping around the town centre.  There will also be dinosaur models, fossil hunting, crafts plus a dinosaur adventure hunt around the town centre shops.  Further information is available on our  page.

A full list of other events happening in Aldershot and Farnborough this year, is available in our Rushmoor events diary.
