Cover Me In Sunshine Performance Picnic

Sunday 24 July 12-4pm (sharing 2-3.30pm)
Fort Royal Park, Wyld's Lane, Worcester WR5 2DJ

We’re really excited to present Cover Me in Sunshine at Fort Royal Park this summer - our bright and colourful outdoor end of term sharing.

It's a chance for Dancefest’s children and young people's groups to show each other, family and friends the work they’ve created throughout the summer term.  

This family-friendly, free event is at the top of Fort Royal Park.

Bring yourselves, your picnics and blankets, relax and enjoy the children and young people dancing.

- and check out our other Cover Me in Sunshine summer activities!
