Bunbury Village Day Round Up
Bunbury Village Day took place on Saturday 17 June at Bunbury Jubilee Playing Fields and our theme this year was SPACE!
We arranged a host of space related activities from groups including the Wonderdome Planetarium, three local astronomical societies, Keele Observatory and Xplore Science Discovery Centre.
We also welcomed the Endon Storm Troopers and the Dragon Order who took part in our fabulous space parade as well as an exciting Tug of War against the local children!
Alongside this crowds enjoyed Chester Brass Band, Pinxton Puppets, a fun fair, donkey rides, bar & BBQ and over twenty stalls, as well as performances by the Hanlon School of Dance, Bunbury Jujitsu Group, Green Bullet and The Easy Peelers!
