Stevenage Day 2017 success

12 Jun 2017

Families from Stevenage flocked to King George V Playing Fields on Sunday to enjoy a day of music, dance, entertainment and attractions at the 58th Stevenage Day.

Organised by Stevenage Borough Council, Stevenage Day is one of the county’s most popular free family events and many thousands of people were entertained by a seaside area, BMX bike track, indoor laser quest, pets corner and a food court and licensed bar.

Performers in the main arena during the day included Camps Hill Cheerleaders, African Fire eating drummers, and Identity Dance. Rock in the Park also returned and acts including Cardinal Kings, Mark Sullivan, Dallenger and Darline wowed visitors with performances on main and acoustic stages.

Councillor Richard Henry, Executive Member for Children, Young People and Leisure said: “As always, Stevenage Day was a brilliant opportunity for local people to come together to have fun and support local charities and organisations. It was great to see so many families basking in the sunshine and enjoying the music, entertainment, and rides on offer.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to the staff, community groups and individuals who worked incredibly hard to make the day a success and I can’t wait to do it all again next year.”

Stevenage Day will return in June 2018. For more information, or to register your interest in taking part in next year’s event, please call the council’s Leisure Services Manager on 01438 242206 or email Stevenage.day@stevenage.gov.uk
