Around 5,000 visitors braved the changeable weather conditions to enjoy an extravaganza of music, dance, sport and culture at Woking’s annual free, family-friendly Party in the Park.
From midday to 7pm, Dallas Campbell, BBC presenter from Bang Goes the Theory, introduced hardy souls to an exciting mix of interactive activities, workshops, sport on the big screen and live music and dance performances by local and national artists.
The Deputy Mayor of Woking, Cllr Derek McCrum, who officially opened proceedings, said: “What a fantastic event! I was delighted to see so many people in Woking Park on Saturday. Despite the wet weather, families, groups of young and old alike grabbed their brollies and came out to enjoy the many performances and take part in the activities on offer. I thoroughly enjoyed its inclusive, eclectic and community-based nature and the opportunity to speak to the many groups and organisations involved. The event really did celebrate what’s great about Woking and what we should be proud about!”
