This year's Wymondham Funday is being billed as the biggest and best that has taken place with a wide range of entertainment and attractions on offer.
City Church Wymondham are running the Funday on behalf of the town council, as they have since 2003. The event takes place at Kett's Park, Harts Farm Road on Sunday and begins at 11.30am, finishing at 4pm.
After the disappointment of the cancellation of the event last year because of a waterlogged Kett's Park surface, the organising team has been determined to give Wymondham an event to remember. There will be a free programme of entertainment on the stage, in the arena or elsewhere around the site.
Among the highlights will be Smoke House Blue marching jazz band, a falconry display, majorettes, a couple of dance displays and a variety of live music including the band World Without End and Robin Duhig of 'Kett's Rebellion'.
The afternoon coincides with two of the biggest British sporting events of the year and to cater for all the fans of Formula 1 and tennis there will be large TV screens in the hall for people to check the progress of Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone and, following that, men's finalists at Wimbledon. To complement these events, there will a display of a historic Formula 1 car from Classic Team Lotus and a fun tennis competition run by local tennis coaches. There will be around 100 classic cars on display from Old-Timers car club and on a smaller scale there will be model car demonstrations from TC model cars. Other attractions include bouncy castles, a roundabout and electric go-karts. This year there will also be a miniature railway with a 50 metre long track offering rides.
Wymondham Funday also offers local community groups and charities the opportunity to publicise their groups and raise money. There will be cake sales, tombolas, face painting and a whole variety of other fund raising activities taking place.
