A fun-packed day for the whole family is promised when Burbage Common holds its annual open day on Sunday 14 May.

The area around the visitor centre at the Leicester Road entrance will be transformed with a marquee accommodating craft and charity stalls and local and national environmental charities.

The event, which is organised by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, makes the most of the natural environment with workshops, demonstrations, animals, falconry display, maypole dancing, crafts, and other outdoor activities. There will also be food and refreshments stalls catering for all tastes.

Admission to the event, which runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm, is free, but there may be a small charge for some of the activities and workshops held.

Paul Scragg, Senior Green Spaces Officer for the Borough Council said:

“This event is always a great day out for the whole family, there is something for everyone. Make a date in the diary and come along. As in previous year’s we will be operating a one-way system for car parking and ask everyone to follow the signs and be aware of pedestrians.  We look forward to seeing you.”
