Free 'Sunday Funday' at the Library on Newbury Wharf 

Newbury Library is celebrating 10 years on Newbury Wharf this weekend with a massive free family event.  This is the seventh time that they have held a 'Sunday Funday' — and last year they had almost 3000 visitors.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 17th October. There will be a huge variety of hands-on activities  — with something for everyone. On offer will be arts and crafts, cycling activities, photography, film making, flower arranging and even circus skills — or you can just sit on a big truck or digger! 

There will also be music, dance and sport demonstrations throughout the day and activities specially for children, including fun cake decorating, face painting and Bangers and the Mash Theatre Company will give two performances of Jack and the Beanstalk.


Many local community groups will be taking part as well as the South Central Ambulance Service, Thames Valley Police and Royal Berkshire Fire Brigade. 

Gordon Lundie, West Berkshire Executive Councillor for Culture and Leisure said: "Sunday Funday is a real highlight in the calendar of events in Newbury, and it is very popular too with almost three thousand visitors taking part last year. I am very pleased that we have again been able to offer such a varied and exciting programme of activities and performances at Newbury Library."

So rain or shine - don't miss it.
