Message from the organisers...

We're just 1 week away from the Extraordinary Orchard Park Parade and very excited to see it start to come to life. If you've visited our Facebook Event you'll have seen our regular updates on all the fab making at our workshops thats been going on.

Here's the main event details - please do share with your networks to encourage everyone to turn out on parade day. A handy map is attached! Plus all the workshop dates. 

The Extraordinary Orchard Park Parade - Saturday 6th May at 2pm.

The Parade sets off from outside St. Michaels Youth project at 2pm. People walking in the parade should arrive from 1pm to get their handmade costume on and their face painted.

Parade finale is at Shaw park at 3pm. With live performances from all our fab parade bands and facepainting. 

With food stalls serving hot dogs, pulled pork sandwiches, wood fired pizza, ice cream and hot and cold drinks, until 4.30pm. 

We still need more adults to come along and make costumes to walk in the parade, so if you can share that our workshops are on this weekend, we'd much appreciate it (Families welcome too of course). 

Open Workshops 

Saturday 29th / Sunday 30th April - 10.30 - 12.30 and 2 - 4pm.

Wednesday 3rd May - 3.30 - 5.30pm.

We hope to see you out for this amazing event next Saturday. Help promoting the event in this final week is very much appreciated. We have plenty flyers left, so do get in touch if you want some spare!
