Date: Sunday 1st July 2018

Location: Ampthill Great Park

Gala Day is a free community event which takes place on the Sunday of the popular Ampthill Festival Weekend from 12.30pm to late afternoon in Ampthill Park. This is a day for relaxing, listening to great music and watching some fabulous arena acts, meeting up with friends and finding out about your local community groups and businesses.

A highlight of Gala Day is the parade which passes through the town centre and arrives at the park around 1.15pm. Prizes are presented to the best dressed groups by the Mayor and then we start our arena performances on the cricket ground.

In the music arena there will be a whole afternoon of music by great local bands. A real festival feel. Around the edge of the Cricket ground there will be stalls promoting local charities, community groups and businesses. There is also a fun fair and a good range of food stalls.

We promise that there is something to entertain every member of the family. Come and join us – you won’t be disappointed!
