Cabinet member for the environment councillor Brian Rollo said: “The Moor Park Get Together is promising to be a fantastic community event where families can come together and have fun – and it’s all free!

“Now the phase one restoration is complete thanks to Heritage Lottery, Big Lotto funding and national lottery players, the park is the perfect setting for events and activities for families to enjoy.

“Hopefully the sun will be shining, so join us for a packed programme of activities and fun.”

While the event is free, pre-registration is advanced to speed up getting into the event (which saw long queues during the previous incarnation as ParkIt). You can register via Skiddle.
