International Children's Day is back!

Where: Gloucester Park

When: Saturday, June 1, 12pm to 5pm

For the second year running a fun children's day is being held at Gloucester Park - a wonderful event organised by the Polish Association Gloucestershire and the Polish parish in Gloucester.

The origin of this holiday goes back to 1925, when representatives from different countries met in Geneva, Switzerland, to convene the first 'World Conference for the Wellbeing of Children'.

There was no specific day recommended, however, many countries - including Poland - established June 1 as The International Children's Day.

This day is not as commonly known in Great Britain, which is why Polish Association Gloucestershire have decided to familiarise the people of Gloucester with this fun event, hoping it will become a permanent fixture in the local cultural calendar.

International Children's Day will take place on Saturday, June 1, at Gloucester Park between 12pm and 5pm.

The organisers have prepared lots of attractions, as well as a rich cultural programme. Bouncy castles, rides, face painting and a falconry show are just a few of the activities awaiting children at the park.

Entertainment will be provided by the theatre group TeArtico, Non-Stop Kids Entertainment Ltd., mascots from Buffoo Celebrations and mascots and well-known characters from Enchanting Story Book Parties.

Also, it wouldn't be a traditional British party without Punch and Judy making an appearance!

You are warmly invited to celebrate this wonderful day.

The event is co-financed by the National Lottery Community Fund and supported by Gloucester City Council, Marketing Gloucester, Gloucester BID and Polish Store Biedronki.
