There will be lots of children's activities, including face painting, balloon-animal making, badge making and street art - as well as music, food and other games. There will also be a toy swop - so bring any old toys and see what new ones you might want to take away with you! For all those bakers amongst you, we'll be having a cake-making competition with some great prizes for both children and adults. And a prize for the best dressed Princess of Princess Crescent (men, women, girls and boys all invited to compete!).

Please bring some food to share with others, and if you don't live too far away, a stool or chair to sit on. We hope to see you there!
