Play day

A top family event returns to Aylesbury’s award-winning Vale Park on Wednesday 7 August for a family play day extravaganza. The event is suitable for all children up to 12 and has a variety of activities on offer from 11am to 4pm.
Organised by Aylesbury Vale District Council to celebrate National Play Day, Play in the Park is an event to help keep children entertained this summer.
They can scale a climbing wall, race on electric go-karts and come face-to-face with a selection of animals at the petting farm. The ever-popular children’s entertainer Colonel Custard will entertain youngsters with his circus skills. New for this year is Professor Diamond, who will be performing a Punch & Judy show throughout the day.
The event will also have a selection of stalls offering food and drinks.
Cllr Paul Irwin, AVDC Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure, said: ‘Play in the Park gives young children across Aylesbury Vale the opportunity to enjoy a fun, active day out with their friends and families. And this year, we’ve gone above and beyond to organise our best-ever range of activities.’
Colonel Custard said: ‘I can’t wait to come back to Play in the Park this year. It’s always such an amazing event, jam-packed with fun, laughter and smiles. This time around I’ll be teaching playful circus skills.’
The event is free to enter and plenty of the activities are, too. Some activities cost between £1 and £3 – tokens for chargeable activities can be bought on the day from token booths around the park.
