Plans announced for Stevenage Day 2023
The largest free event of its kind in Hertfordshire will be held at King George V Recreation Ground, and this year’s theme will focus on arts and culture in our community, as well as the King’s Coronation and the Women’s World Cup.
With a variety of specialist food vendors and over 200 stalls dedicated to charities, voluntary organisations and local businesses, there will be a series of free, fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. Stevenage Day will also include a main performance area and the twin stages of Rock in the Park, supported by the Practice Roomz recording studio.
This year’s event will be sponsored by Everyone Active, the leisure operator confirmed to manage Stevenage Borough Council’s leisure facilities from 1 April 2023. The team will be hosting a stall, showcasing its offering to residents and visitors – from fitness memberships to swimming lessons and much more.
Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Margaret Notley said:
“Stevenage Day is always one of the biggest days in the town’s events calendar – it’s the perfect day out for the whole family, with a huge variety of stalls, activities and performances.
“This year, we will have world music performances, a carnival parade and a Junction 7 stall with different cultural activities visitors can take part in, all based around the theme of arts and culture in our community, as well as activities around the King’s coronation and the Women’s World Cup.”
Mark Leahy, regional contract manager at Everyone Active, said:
“We’re delighted to be part of Stevenage Day for the first time. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with local residents and share our mission to encourage everyone to participate in 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, five times a week.
“We’re looking forward to meeting everyone and showcasing the fantastic facilities that Everyone Active can offer residents in Stevenage.”
