Regent Park Square Street Party, Sunday 4 June 2017

May 17th, 2017 No comments

Hey folks, while you’re thinking of what to do for Bungo in the Back Lanes 2017 (Saturday 17th June), along comes another Strathbungo-based event from the folks that brought you Strathbungo Window Wanderland – with funding support from the Strathbungo Society.

The Council’s Street Play programme offers a free road closure – it usually costs around £1,000 –RPSSportsDay image so residents have decided to take up the offer and stage the first-ever Regent Park Square Street Party on Sunday 4 June 2017.

It’s got something for everyone; for the kids, there’s a Cycle Fun event and Sports Day; there’s home baking for discerning diners (please get in touch with organisers if you want to donate); a Bungo SwapShop (what can you swap, to get?) and – from 4.30pm – a self-organised, come ye all, Bungo BBQ (bring your own stuff).

Everyone’s welcome and the hope is that the road will be car-free all day!  So hop, skip, jump or simply stroll down and mingle with the crowds.

It’s free and everyone’s welcome, but feel free to donate to keep the party going next year!
