Family Fun Days - Summer 2019

The Council provides an affordable family day out every Friday during the school Summer holidays, utilising the Council’s open spaces and working directly with local partners and community organisations.  Family Fun Days have grown in huge popularity over the previous years, attracting up to 2,000 at an event. Families enjoyed bouncy castles, arts and craft activities, and come and try sports, along with other, free family-focused fun provided by local organisations. Whilst the majority of activities were free there was a small charge for the bouncy castles, children’s rides and face painting.   The Family Fun Days provide a fantastic opportunity to promote your business Borough-wide to a range of families and attendees, over a number of weeks.

This year six Family Fun Days will take place around the Borough

  • Friday 26 July – King George’s Playing Fields CM14 5AE
  • Friday 2 August – Warley Playing Fields CM13 3BH
  • Friday 9 August – Hutton Recreation Ground CM13 1BP
  • Friday 16 August – King George’s Playing Fields CM14 5AE

Lighting Up Brentwood  

Saturday 30 November 2019, 12.30pm-6pm, Brentwood High Street.

Lighting Up Brentwood is the largest community event on the Council’s calendar.  The event around Brentwood High Street celebrates the start of the festive season.  Much of the popularity of the event is down to the strong network of community organisations that are involved in providing activities along the length of the High Street, which is closed for the event. There are almost 80 market stalls selling festive arts and crafts, and hot food and drink, together with Santa’s Grotto, walkabout acts and other children’s activities. There is a packed programme of performances on three stages, primarily by local schools and talented community performers. The event attracts a lot of attention from the local press and in 2018 we estimated over 15,000 people attended the event throughout the day with a packed switch-on by the Mayor.

Make sure you check out our Lighting Up Brentwood 2018 video, you will not be disappointed!
