Parklife - free event in Aylesbury

Sunday, 31 August 2014

It really is surprising how many local events you can find that are actually free! Today we took advantage of another really great event - Parklife - that was taking place in Vale Park, Aylesbury.

This was organised by Aylesbury Town Council and Aylesbury Church Network. There was a Proms in the Park evening last night which would be nice to go to when Little Miss A is older and can stay up later.

Today was a Family Fun Day followed by live music. We got to the park about 3pm and just caught the tail-end of the Fun Day activities. During the afternoon, there were crafts, face painting, a "We're a Knockout" tournament and at least 5 different inflatables. Little Miss A was able to have a quick go on one of the inflatables which had a mini bouncy castle, ball pit and inflatable slide. So she was happy.

We were also able to take advantage of the free BBQ! Mr MoaB and I enjoyed a burger and there were even bottles of water for free.

The fun day was winding down with the inflatables being deflated by about 3.30pm to get ready for the live music that started at 4pm. First up on the large stage was 'The Dung Beatles', a Beatles tribute band, who played for an hour. Then there was a brief break before 'The Notations', a rock and blues band, came onto the stage. We could only stay for a bit of their set though as Little Miss A was starting to get tired. The final band to play was going to be 'Busting Loose' who were due on at 7pm.

I think the event could have been better promoted as there weren't as many people at the park for the live music as I would have imagined. Good for us though as lots of space for Little Miss A to run around and dance!

This was a really lovely way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon and evening, and all for FREE!
