The Friends of Winckley Square have organised a free Gala in the Gardens.

The Georgian Square will provide the backdrop for an afternoon of fun and laughter.

There will be live music from Geno and Hayley who both appeared on The Voice with Hayley making it to the knock out rounds coached by

Award-winning illusionists Slightly Unusual will share a performance that combines comedy, magic and audience participation.

The show features Craig Petty, who is a three-time winner of The British Magical Society Close Up Magician of the Year. Craig has also won The British Magical Society Stage Magician of the Year multiple times.

Angie Mack of Hoops Hoops and More Hoops is a highly skilled and creative hula hooper who has been spinning her way around the country for over a decade.

Angie, who loves to get people up and hooping, believes that with the right hoops, a little encouragement and the right music, anyone young or old can do it.

The Crimplene Crusaders are octogenarian upholders of moral values.

These twin-set clad campaigners will keep a firm eye out for any slouching, texting, or hand-holding in Winckley Square, making sure that good old fashioned values are championed.

Attendees are encouraged to meet friends, take a picnic and relax with a soft drink, Pimms or beer from the FoWS pop-up bar.

There will be Crazy Golf and Giant Games, and children will be able to have their faces painted, listen to a story or plant seeds.

FoWS’ Patricia Harrison said: “In these challenging economic times, we offer free-of-charge events so that no
one is excluded through an inability to pay. We will create a memorable day for large numbers of people.”

Gala in the Gardens takes place at Winckley Square on Sunday 6 August from 12pm to 4pm.
