Fun Day Sat 2nd July

Our aim is to offer Redbourn families a super day out absolutely free of charge. The only items not free are food and drink.  You can, of course, bring a picnic.

Over 25 local community groups will supply fun games and activities. These include target Petanque,  Beat the Goalie”, “Splat a Rat”, skipping challenges and much more. At the heart of the event on the common, there will be continuous on-stage entertainment featuring live music from “Mama Love Live”, and performances from the Library, Primary School and Latin dance / Keep Fit.
