Bank Holiday Fun & Games

EVENT 26/05/2018 – 28/05/2018

It’s all fun and games at Bell Court this Bank Holiday with visitors invited to challenge each other to an outdoor game of table tennis, table football and giant chess.

For the younger game-lovers, there will also be ‘catch the fish’ and Jenga, as well as free face painting.

Plus, local musicians, Two Tone Acoustic, will be performing live and the very talented dancers from Rozie T Dance will be showcasing their latest routines.

The outdoor games will be available for people to enjoy between 10am and 6pm from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th May, whilst the free face painting, dance and music performances will be taking place on Monday 28th May. The face painting will be available to all children between 10am and 4pm and the live performances will be taking place between 12.45pm and 3pm.

Toby Saggers, Asset Manager at UK & European, owners of Bell Court, said: “Bell Court is proving to be a popular destination for people wanting to make the most of the recent summer weather and with the forecast looking good for the Bank Holiday, we’re sure lots of people will want to come along and join in with our outdoor games, free face painting and live entertainment.

“There’s also a tempting selection of summer menus now available at the many bars and restaurants, as well as family fun at Magic Alley and a great new range of home accessories at Farringdon and Forbes. Not forgetting that the latest Star Wars film is now showing at Everyman; there really is something for everyone.”

This event is the first in a series of family fun activities that will be taking place at Bell Court throughout the summer.

Rotary Shakespeare Marathon

Hundreds of runners from across Stratford will be taking to the streets on Sunday 13th May to compete in this year’s Marathon!

The Marathon will be starting on Church Street and will pass Bell Court via Rother Street before travelling through the town centre and out towards Long Marston before heading back and finishing at the Recreation Ground. Best of luck to everyone taking part!

Once you’ve finished cheering, you’ll need something to soothe your throat – whether that’s wine, a cup of tea or a smoothie – and we’ve got plenty of choice at Bell Court.
