Bandstand Sessions continue: Jude Paul as Frank Sinatra this Sunday

Wow! Sunday afternoon was superb! Celtic Capers put in a faultless performance on the Bandstand and good fun and enjoyment was had by all who were there to listen to them. Geraldine Ann Ford was also on hand to deliver some more of her captivating children’s stories from the Storyteller’s Throne in the Wildlife Garden. We raised £100.44 on the day, mainly from takings at the Bookshop. The money raised will go towards our ‘Smile – You’re On Camera’ project to get CCTV in the Park. Most importantly, Sunday helped promote the Bandstand! Our grateful thanks to the ‘Capers and to Geraldine for making Ellington Park such a great place to be on Sunday, as well as to everyone who dug deep in their pockets to raise money for Ellington Park!

The Sunday Sessions don’t end there, though, as the excellent Jude Paul will be making his Bandstand debut this coming Sunday (26 July), singing as Frank Sinatra. Jude’s easy-listening tunes will be well worth visiting the Park for, and will be absolutely ideal to relax and bring a picnic to. After the success of last week, the Flying Horse pub will again be providing a drinks service to quench your thirst – just place your order with them in the Park and they will bring the drinks over to you.

Enjoy a drink in the Flying Horse, nextdoor to Ellington Park...

FREE Children’s Storytelling and the Celtic Capers kick-off Summer of Fun this Sunday

An action-packed summer of fun in Ellington Park kicks off this Sunday as the Celtic Capers take centre stage on the Bandstand at 2.

Before that, renowned author, Geraldine Ann Ford, will be delivering some delightful children’s tales from the Storyteller’s Throne in the Wildlife Garden at 1.30pm.

The Celtic Capers and Geraldine are both great supporters of the Park.

The ‘Capers first played on the Bandstand as a warm-up for the 2014 May Fayre, keeping the volunteers going with their folky tunes as everything got set up in the morning. They were so good that it wasn’t long before a significant crowd of local people had assembled long before midday (the official opening time) to get into the spirit!

And Geraldine had the kids absolutely captivated when she held court at the Storyteller’s Throne on the day of the Wildlife Garden Grand Opening back in April this year. Just as on that day, the Friends will be opening their now well-known Bookshop and will again be offering a FREE children’s book for every child who visits us

Welcome back to all of our artists! We look forward to seeing the townsfolk of Ramsgate on Sunday!
