Crowds flock for Ashfield Day 2022

Save the date for the return of Ashfield Day

Sutton Lawn is set to host an Ash-stravaganza as Ashfield Day returns to the park on Saturday 5 August.

Following the enormous success of the first ever Ashfield Day in August last year, that saw more than 12,000 visitors flock to Sutton Lawn to enjoy the free event, the Council is pleased to officially announce the return of the event.

Ashfield Day will be another free fun day for the whole community to come together and celebrate everything about Ashfield. Last year visitors to the event enjoyed three cinema screenings; a packed stage featuring local schools and singers; a bustling market village offering food, gifts, crafts, and jewellery; a dog show; donkeys; pony rides; walkabout princesses; funfair rides; inflatables; free face painting; emergency service vehicles; and family activities including circus skills, hoola hoop megastructure, and giant garden games.

This year event goers can expect to see even more animal displays, a packed entertainment stage with tribute acts to popular bands and artists, the open-air cinema showing two films, the market village, food and drink stalls, a bar, a heritage area, and even more to be announced soon!

Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council, said

“Everyone loved the inaugural Ashfield Day last year so we are delighted to bring it back to Sutton Lawn, but even better this time. We had amazing feedback following the first event and we have built on that to enhance the previous offer to create an excellent event for the whole community.
“We will announce more details shortly, but for now put Saturday 5 August in your diaries!”
