A Summer of Games and Musical Names at Heartlands
Heartlands is gearing up for its first summer season with an exciting mix of events and activities to appeal to young and old.
The ‘Heartlands – It’s Alive’ summer will see every nook and cranny of the 19 acre cultural playground and World Heritage Site Gateway come to life through games, music, art and good old fashioned fun.
On 28/29 July, bows and arrows are at the ready as we embrace the games our ancestors used to play with Ye Olde Games. Visitors can enjoy archery in the events arena, Petanque in the market square or Giant Hopscotch in Robinson’s courtyard as well as take part in the special ‘It’s Alive’ trail.
4/5 August sees a return to the wild at Heartlands. From den-building to knot and fire making, this weekend is designed to encourage families to enjoy the great outdoors together and learn some survival tricks.
On 11/12 August, it’s time for some crazy adventure at Heartlands with some Wacky Games. Think Alice in Wonderland and you’ll know what to find at Heartlands over this weekend. From giant games to tiny adventures, leave normality at the gates with a weekend of wacky fun.
As an added bonus, the Adventure Playground will open until 8pm every Friday throughout the school holidays.
As well as holiday fun and games, Heartlands will play host to some wonderful evenings of music.
On Friday 27 July, singer/songwriter Kaj Skjervik will perform a live acoustic set in the Red River Café and Bar at a special After Hours event. From 5-9pm, guests can enjoy a delicious tapas menu in the atmospheric surroundings of this former Carpenter’s Workshop.
On Saturday 25 August, the Chi an Bobel Great Hall will come alive to the epic sounds of the Mount Charles Brass Band as they take us through their musical repertoire. Last Night of the Proms starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 adults, £5 children under 16 years.
On 26 August, it is the Diaspora Gardens that will come to life for an evening of jazz with renowned musician and Jools Holland Jam House resident, Roger Bird and his band. Visitors can delve into their own delicious picnic or pick up some tasty treats from the Gourmet Snack Shack. The perfect way to spend a Bank holiday weekend. Jazz Picnic tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for children (under 16 yrs).
