Walkden College will be opening their doors to the community for a day of food and festivities for the whole family
10 April 2018
On Saturday, April 21, Walkden College, Salford, will be opening their doors to the public for the Walkden College Community Fun Day.
| BBQ | CLIMBING WALL | FIRE ENGINE | BOUNCY CASTLES’ | GUIDE DOGS | FACE PAINTING | BEAUTY TREATMENTS | SOFT PLAY | ARCHERY | SHOOT THE HOOP | FOOTBALL SKILLS ZONE | LIVE PERFORMANCES | PLUS MUCH MORE |
The college, which has been a pillar of the community for coming up to 100-years, will be welcoming families from 11am onwards, on the day of the free event.
The entire community has been invited to help celebrate the college’s 100-year status, including the Ceremonial Mayor, and it’s promised to be a day of fun, food and festivity for the entire family.
For the kids, they’ll be a bouncy castle, slide, face painting, soft play and story time. For the older ones the college will be putting on sports activities, including football skills, shoot the hoop, archery and there will even be a climbing wall for the more extreme sportsman. What’s more, all activities are of no set price, and instead, the college is asking for donations to local charities, the Veterans’ Garage and The Bridgewater Youth Centre, as they strive to support the city’s most, and least, experienced residents.
The whole community is getting involved in the event, with stalls from local businesses in the area putting on activities and selling produce – keeping the rest of the family entertained while the kids get stuck in.
Departments across the college will be hosting their own activities as well. Staff and students from the hospitality department will be putting on a BBQ, a chocolate fountain, candy floss and other sweet treats – again, at no set price. Likewise, the hair and beauty department will be offering beauty treatments in the brand new, state-of-the-art, Aspirations Salon.
On top of this, the city’s fire and rescue service will be in attendance, as will St Johns Ambulance, who will be running first aid training sessions on a donation basis.
There will be a ‘100-years of’ theme throughout the event, to further commemorate the college’s milestone.
The locally renowned, Glass House Restaurant, will be transformed into an old-fashioned tea room, in keeping with the ‘100-years of’ theme, and the college’s high-spec classrooms will be made into an exhibition space dedicated to the past century.
And if all of this wasn’t enough, students, including Pendleton Sixth Form College’s choir, The Consort of Voices, and some of those studying on the FutureSkills at MediaCityUK music course, will be taking to the stage to keep visitors entertained throughout the 3-hour event.
Local to the area and hoping for a fun filled day? Come on down between 11am and 2pm on Saturday, April 21, to Walkden College, M28 7QD. Limited parking available.
