Thousands are expected at Titchfield Park in Mansfield as it comes alive with music and fun at the popular Mansfield Summer Festival in August.

The Green Flag award-winning park will be hosting the festival during the school summer holiday on Thursday 3 August, from 11am to 4pm with free family entertainment including live music, circus skills workshops and an eco-themed theatre show. 

Music and theatre are centre stage at the event with Disney princesses Belle and Ariel giving a Disney hits performance and making appearances throughout the day.

Children’s favourite Squirrel Walnutkins will be saving the planet in an interactive comedy adventure stage show to stop the last tree in Evergreen Wood from being cut down, while making new friends along the way. The performance, aimed at primary age youngsters, will be signed for the hard of hearing.  

There will be singalongs and live music from the talented local singer, River Hopkins, and the popular upbeat roaming brass band, Top Tier Brass.

A crowd of 2,500 are expected at the event which will have a variety of food vendors as well as face painting, arts and crafts, arena activities and stalls.   

Executive Mayor Andy Abrahams said: “It’s going to be another fantastic free council-run event within walking distance of the town centre.

“There will be tons to fun things for the kids to do and it will be a great family day out which won’t cost the earth so mark it your diary now and look forward to meeting up with friends and making some happy memories.”
