Harpenden's Teddy Bears' Picnic is returning to Rothampsted Park next month - coinciding with National Play Day.

The event, hosted by Harpenden Town Council, will take place from 11am to 2pm on Wednesday, August 7.

There will be a variety of activities and entertainment, including musical show 'Cha Char Chimps', a show and activities by The Little Gym, story time with Harpenden Library, the Teddy Bears' Hospital, a bouncy castle and soft play - as well as stalls from the Eric Morecombe Centre, Harpenden Child Contact Centre and Youth Talk.

Town council organisers will hand out lost children's wrist bands at the information desk, and attendees will also be able to buy tickets for Sandy Art and Fantastic Faces Face Paint.

Harpenden Town Mayor Cllr Pip Liver said: "The Teddy Bear’s Picnic is a wonderful Harpenden occasion.


"It is always so exciting to see children engaged in fun activities in Harpenden’s beautiful Rothamsted Park.

"The town council is proud to organise events for young families, helping to make memories, and importantly ensuring events like this are free to attend and available to everyone."

Attendees are encouraged to bring along a picnic blanket, refreshments and their favourite bear.
