Festival Saturday proves popular after forecast downpours fail to materialise

Posted on Saturday 7th June 2014 at 10:37 pm by SH (Editor)

Bradley Stoke Community Festival 2014.

The main day of Bradley Stoke’s annual Community Festival drew a big crowd to the Jubilee Centre after the forecast thundery downpours failed to materialise during the morning and early afternoon.

The usual mix of music, dance, sport, demonstrations and sideshows was accompanied by bright weather for most of the afternoon, with only a few spots of rain.

We have lots of photos from today’s event on our Facebook page. Don’t forget we’re offering a £20 prize for the best reader photo published in our July magazine (the Editor’s decision is final). Send your entries to: photos@bradleystokejournal.co.uk

Tomorrow (Sunday 8th June) sees another full day of events, which gets under way with the Bradley Stoke 10k Run at 9.30am from the Jubilee Centre. A record field is expected for the race after the entry limit was raised from 600 to 650 to cope with demand. Parking is limited, so runners are being asked to park elsewhere or, if local, walk to the start. Check out our race map to see where and when you can cheer the runners along.

A competition for scooter, BMX, skateboard and inline skate disciplines is being staged at Bradley Stoke Skate Park (in the leisure centre car park) from 11am to 5pm.

In the afternoon, the second running of the Bradley Stoke Bed Race takes place between 12.30pm and 1.15pm, with the start and finish at Baileys Court Activity Centre. This is followed by the Festival Cricket Match at 2pm, also at Baileys Court, between the Mayor’s XI and a Bradley Stoke Cricket Club XI.

Bradley Stoke Bowls Club is staging a roll-up demonstration between 2pm and 3pm on its Baileys Court green.
