Twinkle Park Summer Festival 2014 – Schedule

Sunday 29th June 2014 sees this year’s Twinkle Park Summer Festival – a day for the community to come out to the park for music, fun and activities, supported by Greenwich Parksfest.

The event will also serve as a celebration of the completion of the Twinkle Park and Charlotte Turner Gardens Masterplan, including the unveiling of a commemorative tree plaque, and the formal opening of the new toddler’s playground (if you haven’t already had a go on the talking tubes, this is your opportunity!).

As such, as well as the main events in Twinkle Park, there are some special parts of the programme in the Southern end of Charlotte Turner Gardens to start the day.

Please see below the intended times:
