16 things we're doing at the Lord Mayor's Show
This Sunday we’re heading to one of our favourite parks – Cannon Hill Park for the Lord Mayor’s Show. The annual event is this year celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday!
We’ve drawn up this 16 point itinerary – which we’re jolly well sticking to!
- 11am - Walk straight in – the event is FREEEEEE!
- Get our faces painted (we're thinking tiger, possibly Spider-Man)
- Go and look at some majestic falcons & check out some skilled sheepdogs
- Head to the Health and Well Being Zone - fire some arrows, partake in some hula-hooping and then relax with a spot of Tai Chi
- After all that exercise it's time to maintain the waistline with some delicious street food
- Check out the new Greenspaces children’s play area (which the Lord Mayor will be officially opening), ride some rides and bounce on the bouncy castle.
- Buy some local wares from the craft store
- Be inspired by aforementioned craft and try to create something ourselves with a free workshop
- Curse our lack of artistic talent and console ourselves with some yummy street food
- Listen to a storytelling session whilst taking in the beautiful vista of Cannon Hill Park
- Head to the Armed Forces stalls - sign up with the Royal Navy to see the world!
- Listen to some live music
- Cancel our membership to the Royal Navy - we love Birmingham too much!
- Celebrate the fact we haven't been court-martialled with some tasty street food
- 5pm - Leave feeling energised yet relaxed, stuffed and creative
- As we’re in the vicinity, walk up the hill to Moseley and check out what’s going on – we weren’t as silly to have driven as spaces are limited!*
