Countdown to Stevenage Day 2018 is underway

29 May 2018

Stevenage Day 2018 is on Sunday 17 June with the fun set to start from 12 noon and continue all afternoon.

This year’s event – the 59th annual town show at King George V playing fields - will include a beach with Victorian seaside activities, a petting farm and birds of prey, and free hot air balloon rides, as well as a host of stalls and rides.

To celebrate Fathers’ Day there will be free dads and families photo shoots on offer, and the chance to have a go at electric go-karts and giant Scalextric.

There will also be a food court offering a range of delicious and diverse snacks, along with musical entertainment, and a licensed bar, and the best of our fabulous local talent on show in the main arena.

The popular Rock in the Park music festival is back for 2018, with acts performing on twin stages from midday to 7pm. The line-up will be announced soon.

Stevenage Day 2018 is sponsored by Specialist Cars, and supported by a range of local businesses who have generously donated raffle prizes. These include a Cineworld annual pass, a £50 Rump and Wade voucher, a family ticket for the Gordon Craig Theatre, a free horse riding lesson at Courtlands Riding School and free tickets for Airspace.

Councillor Richard Henry, Executive Member for Children, Young People and Leisure, said: “Excitement is building ahead of this year’s Stevenage Day and the line-up is bigger and better than ever. It’s a great opportunity for local people to come together and have fun in the sunshine – I hope - and support local charities and organisations at the same time.”
