Mansfield District Council is kick-starting the holidays with the first of four summer festivals on Tuesday, 29th July at Carr Lane Park, Warsop.

The event which runs from 10am until 3pm is packed full of free entertainment and activities for all the family - including the dog!

There will be arena attractions including a demonstration from the Double Dogs Dancing team, multi-skills sports activities, circus skills workshops and dog obedience demonstrations.

There is also an opportunity to take part in BMX taster sessions on the park’s track - age restrictions apply and booking may be required on the day.

Coun Philip Shields, the council’s portfolio holder for the environment, said: “It’s a great opportunity to spend some time out with the family in our parks and take part in some fun activities. Bring your friends and family for a great day out.”

A marquee will host a range of other activities including a recycling arts and crafts workshop, a chance to meet the Dogs Trust team to pick up some tips on looking after your dog and a butterfly-themed craft workshop with the Greenwood Partnership.

Representatives from the council’s various departments will also be available to answer questions and give advice including members of the Your Dog Your Responsibility team with their mascot Scoop, our supernanny parenting practitioner, environmental health officers and neighbourhood wardens.

Parking on site is very limited, so please walk or use public transport if possible.

On 9th August, the celebrations will move to Mansfield town centre, before heading to King George V Park, Black Scotch Lane on 14th August and then finishing with celebrations on 23rd August on Chesterfield Road Park, Chesterfield Road South.
