Picnic in the Park - Take 2!

Redmond Park plays host to the rescheduled Picnic in the Park this coming Saturday (Sept 15). Having been ambushed by the weather at the first attempt to put on this event in August the Love Redmond Park group decided that, with the forecast looking relatively benign, it’s now or never! LRP is working closely with Wexford Borough Council to ensure the park is in peak condition for the day.
The fun begins at 1.45pm when Wexford band “the submersibles” will be letting loose with their unique brand of no-holds-barred r&b, funk and blues. A packed programme follows with more live music from local singer/songwriters, dance from the always-exciting Footworx Dance School and the Co Wexford Youth Dance Company. The latter performs a new piece Concerto Grosso with music by Corelli and choreography by Sheila Creevey. The programme continues with Red Moon Theatre’s Puppet Show and fun arts zone, Wexford Arts Centre's Little Artists Club, obstacle races with Menapians AC, soccer skills performed by up and coming stars of Wexford Celtic, a boules display from the local Redmond Park Boules Club, face-painting and balloon modelling. The day will end with DJ Cullie spinning some of his current favs. While families are encouraged to bring along their own picnic baskets refreshments and snacks are available on-site. His Worship, The Mayor, Cllr Jim Allen will formally open the event.
See you next Saturday!

  1. Hi there,
    Might be worth entering the Glenisk competition via Facebook. They are offering a €250 prize for community fundraising events between now and end of September. If you win they also send along Glenisk reps to hand out yoghurts on the day!

  2. Thanks Catherine. I have entered us into the competition. Fair play to Glenisk - their marketing department is on the ball.
