The annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic returns to Lydekker Park on August 1 as part of The Lively in Lydekker summer programme.

This year the event will include craft activities, a soft play area, bouncy castle, wildlife activities with the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, face painting and entertainment from Captian Fantastic and the Wonder Crew.

Lydekker Park was recently presented with its second Green Flag Award, recognising it as one of the UK’s best parks and green spaces. Following the Teddy Bears’ Picnic, the final event of the Lively in Lydekker programme will be the new Music in Lydekker event. This new event will bring the magic of Jazz music to Lydekker, along with a bar and other refreshments - more details will be revealed about the Music in Lydekker event nearer the time.
