It's not only the stage that has some quality entertainment, out and about on the park family entertainment comes in the form of Pinxton Puppets, a first class puppet show with an opportunity to get up close and listen to some traditional stories.
The hugely popular and Britain's Got Talent stars What a Palaver will perform Olympic Show specially devised to celebrate the 30th Olympiad - a presentation of every single one of the 28 Olympic sports, plus the opening & closing ceremonies, in just 30 minutes.
A lively and energetic show with elements of street theatre, mime, circus, general silliness & complete chaos. Incorporating occasional moments that could even be considered educational!
NWLDC Chairman will be judging the Fancy Dress and there will be medals for the winners. Those entering the Best King or Queen (adult and child categories) or Best Olympic Team, should register on the day.
Cllr Smith said "we are hoping that people will take on the theme and enter. There are a lot of patriotic items in the shops at the moment and people are gearing up for their own street parties - everyone is feeling very creative. It's good fun, so do join in".
Arts and crafts always go down well with the children and there will be plenty to choose from, all with either a Jubilee or Olympic theme. A mosaic workshop will be run by Nottingham Artist Julie Vernon. She will be supervising workshops to create six slabs that will be placed in front of six oak trees that have been planted in the park to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Participants will be able to see their work later in the year when the slabs are installed.
Sports fans are not forgotten – they can join our Ping Pong in the Park with have-a-go table tennis, and fun sports games with the Active Together Team where medals are up for grabs. In this area too you can see the Big Dance 2012 Demonstration and marvel at the 1188 Squadron Air Cadet drills.
Coalville Park events always include something for the teenagers and this event is no exception. RAMPZ Community Group, who are gathering support for an indoor skate park in Coalville, have come together to program a fantastic day of skate, scooter, BMX, and football. StyleBicycle.com which consists of Keelan Phillips (3 x UK champ BMX flatlander), Terry Price UK's top scooter rider (he rides for MADDgearUK), world record breaking football freestyler and one of UK's top breakdancers. They will all be doing demo's and running coaching workshops for the kids throughout the day and there will be mini comps for the local young riders and skaters (£1 entry per person for comps).
Councillor Alison Smith concluded, "This is a fantastic, jam packed programme of family fun for the local community. Remember, Sunday, 27th May from 12noon until 6pm. The event is free and there really is something for everyone".
Food and drink, sandpit and deckchairs, community stalls galore, walkabout entertainers, children's rides and inflatable complete the picture.
