Families are being promised a day of free fun as Picnic In The Park returns to Astley Park on Sunday.

The sixth annual event has a host of entertainment, including an appearance by the Cbeebies presenter Alex Winters and children’s entertainer Mr Yipadee.

There will also be a family stage show with performances from children’s entertainers, local bands and singers, dance acts, face painters, balloon modellers and more.

The event starts at 11am and will also feature interactive activities for children including sports, games, rock climbing and archery.

Cyclists of all ages can take along their bikes and join the British Cycling Skyride at 2pm.

Coun Peter Wilson, who is responsible for events at Chorley Council, said: “Come rain or shine, Astley Park is the place to bring the whole family on Sunday.

“There will be lots going on between 11am and 5pm to keep the little ones entertained, so just bring your family and a picnic and we’ll sort the rest out.

“This year we’ve asked Rock FM to bring their fantastic family stage show and entertainers to the event so there will be lots of opportunities for the children to sing along, dance and get involved with a whole host of acts including Alex, the very popular Cbeebies presenter, and Mr Yipadee.”
