Bradley Stoke Community Festival 2016 Review

Friday 3rd June 2016

The first day of the Festival basked in warm sunshine which brought out a record number of families enjoying the Picnic in the Park on the Jubilee Green. With Professor Panic providing magic and circus skills shows, face painting, a bouncy castle and the ever popular treasure hunt provided by Friends of Jubilee Green, there was plenty of entertainment for the children. Food and refreshments were provided by the WI who did a roaring trade, along with music and commentary from Bradley Stoke Radio.

Saturday 4th June 2016

The main day of the Festival was kicked off with the annual BS Football Tournament for Year 1 Boys and Girls which was again well attended with over 140, competitive, children taking part.

Gemma and Sim, a singing duo from BS Community school, provided an excellent start to the music section with local bands; Telson, Elevation, Subduction, Limited Edition, Tundra and Skeeter; completing the line up. In between the bands local talented children, some as young as 3, provided really enthusiastic dance displays, the dance groups included; Yasmins, Baby Ballet, 344 Dance School, Street Envy and Garlands School of Dance. Along with dancers from South Gloucestershire Asian Project and the South Gloucestershire Chinese Association providing a selection of colourful and traditional dances, ensured a superb afternoon's entertainment.

The BS Scouts group again provided a range of activities, including longbow archery and the popular Vertical Extreme climbing wall.

Events in the demonstration area, on Jubilee Green were once again hosted very ably by Bradley Stoke Radio with the King Ramps Skate Pipe providing displays by the pro's with youngsters able to “have a go” on bikes and skate boards.

The main display this year was dog agility provided by Canine Relate of South Glos, ably supported with displays from Dragon Sang Doo, South West Winterguard Academy displays, GKR Karate and mini rugby displays from BS Rugby Club.

Fun rides and activities for the children included bungee trampolines, giant slides, football games, giant inflatables and a Helter Skelter plus sideshows, arts & crafts and community stalls offering a wide range of local arts, products and novelties.

Sunday 5th June 2016

The good weather continued into the Sunday and the popular 10k Run, organised by Sole Sisters, was another resounding success with over 600 runners taking part from the Jubilee Centre.

At Baileys Court the morning started with an outdoor service provided by the combined BS Churches and this was followed by BS Cricket club's 25th anniversary celebration which featured ex Glos and England cricketer, Jack Russell, displaying a range of his paintings. A short cricket match was played by the under 8's followed by a 20:20 match between a BSCC XI and a celebrity XI including players from Bristol City FC. The celebration was a great success and the entertainments and cricket provide by the club was enjoyed by a crowd of over 300 and completed another very successful and entertaining Festival.
