If you reckon there's no place like home, but also like to get outdoors every once in a while, then you should check out the Home Festival this August.
This event is a 'celebration of everything that makes home what it is – whatever that may be'. There will be plenty to see and do on the day, including various workshops and activities, singing, dancing, storytelling, food, retail and information stalls, a suitcase rummage, and even things to do for the little ones and big ones alike. And what better place for such a family festival to take place in than at the Raymond Park.
The kids can have fun in their own zone, complete with toys, activities and yummy treats. It will also offer the parents a chance to relax and check out the other activities that are on offer, specially for them. There are craft workshops, drawing workshops, and heaps of other activities to get involved in, and perhaps learn a new skill or two.
Basically, the Home Festival is aimed to 'embrace and connect the local community', as well as 'providing a platform' for talented persons to show what they can do. This will be a fun way to share with and celebrate the sense of community that we all long for. It's an event for all ages, and there is something for everyone at this event, so come along and enjoy.
The festival also strives to highlight the importance of the environment, as sustainability will be promoted throughout the event. There will be practical ways that show how you can use recycled materials and make them into something useful for your home. If you have any ideas or tips for what can be shown on the day, the organisers are looking for your input into sustainable practices: just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
