Stanley Park and The Isla Gladstone bandstand will come alive for the August bank holiday weekend as Liverpool prepares for a Summer Garden Party that all the family can enjoy. The event takes place Sunday 28th of August from 11.30am to 3pm: Entry is FREE.
The Summer Garden Party will see plenty of entertainment for all ages, including live music, workshops, performances, screenprinting, storytelling, facepainting and a wellbeing tent ran by Positivity Inc.CIC who will be offering taster sessions of yoga, meditation and mindfulness for children and grownups.
Among the highlights of the event are a range of workshops for kids of all ages. With Square Pegs, children can create their own bird or bunny masks, then listen to and participate in interactive storytelling sessions accompanied by music and props.
Meanwhile Paper Moon will be leading an introduction to the art of screenprinting, where anyone and everyone can take part in a hands on, woodland-themed print workshop.
Also included is a performance of song and dance by children from the Staged Kaos group who have wowed crowds at Liverpool festivals this year, including Africa Oye.
For music lovers there will be live acoustic music from Liverpool-based acts including Rosenblume, The Mono LPs and Nick Ellis, programmed in partnership with Mellowtone.
The Summer Garden Party is organised by Stanley Park Liverpool CIC, part of the Isla Gladstone’s community development work, together with a range of partners. The event is supported by the Beautiful Ideas Company and Mayor Joe Anderson.
Gemma McGowan, the Managing Director of the Isla Gladstone, set up the CIC this year to promote fun days, host real life social networks and sports activities for all, while also working to improve the local environment.
As Gemma describes it, “Stanley Park is a beautiful space in the heart of North Liverpool so we’re really excited to invite families from across the city to join us over the August bank holiday to listen to live music and spend time in our brilliant park!”
Stanley Park’s Summer Garden Party takes place on Saturday 28th August from 11:30am til 3pm and remember that entrance is completely free.
