The area around the visitor centre from the Leicester Road entrance will be transformed into a marquee which will accomodate craft and charity stalls – including local and national environmental charities.

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council (HBBC) have organised the open day to ‘make the most’ of the natural environment.

It will include workshops, demonstrations, animals, a map display from the Hinckley and District Museum, maypole dancing, crafts, and other outdoor activities.

Food and refreshment stalls will be set up, where vendors will cater for all tastes.

The event is completely free-to-attend, but it has been noted that a ‘small’ charge may be in place for some of the activities and workshops that are being held.

Coun. Bill Crooks, the Borough Council’s Executive Member for Parks and Open Spaces, said: “It is an absolute delight that we are able to re-instate this event at the Common.

“It is always a great day out for the family, there is lots to see and do. Make a date in the diary and come along.”
