Teddy Bears' Picnic

IF YOU COME DOWN TO RUSSELL PARK… YOU’LL SURE HAVE A BIG SURPRISE!

A Teddy Bears picnic will take place in Russell Park on Tuesday 5th June from 12.30pm – 2.30pm and everyone is invited. There is no need to book a place. Families can just turn up on the day with their teddy and a spot of lunch.

 

The event will also host a competition in which people can guess the name of the teddy to win a prize, and each and every participant will receive their very own ‘I’ve been to Russell Park’s Teddy Bear Picnic 2012’ certificate, as a keepsake.

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “This is a magical tradition that proves so popular with children… and adults! Many grown-ups can cast their minds back to when they attended a teddy bears picnic as a child and often have very fond memories of the imaginative outdoor experience.”

 

Also going on in Russell Park on the day will be an ‘It’s a Knockout’ event, along with the hugely popular International Kite Festival, and Diamond Jubilee Celebrations – all guaranteed to add to the fun atmosphere!
