June 2013 - Kings Park 75th Anniversary Event.

Main Stage

THOUSANDS of people flocked to Retford on Saturday to be part of the celebrations that marked the 75th Anniversary of Kings Park.
This award-winning park was officially opened on 29th June 1938, to commemorate the reign of King George V and the Coronation year of King George VI. And on Saturday, 75 years to the day, Bassetlaw District Council in partnership with Totally Locally hosted a Birthday Bash to remember.

Tony Casino

Just some of the celebrations that created a buzz of excitement included performances from local dance schools, Dancers

musical acts that spaned the seven decades of the park, martial arts displays and a paintball arena for the more energetic visitors.

John Berry

There were also more sedate pursuits for those people who wanted to take things at a slower pace such as an animal handling stall, sampling the culinary delights of some of Retford's finest eateries or enjoying the antics of the resident clown and magician. Roger Kennedy

We could not have wished for a better way to celebrate the anniversary, the weather was on our side and so was the town. Our original idea was to put on a community event for Retford people by Retford people and we definitely St Jimmy

achieved that.
it is amazing what talent we have on our doostep from performers to business people, our thanks to everyone who played their part to make it a day to remember. Will Pettet

Were currently working on plans to turn this into an annual event for the town like us on facebook or keep an eye on our news pages for information on what we hope will become Retford's big family event of the year.
