AFTER two years away, Pontypool’s Party in the Park will return next week with a host of entertainment and activities for the whole family.

The event will feature a fun fair, live performances and an appearance from Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Titan the Robot.

Around 3,000 people are expected attend the event in Pontypool Park, with the fun kicking off at 11am on on Saturday, July 9.

There will be free activities, including bungee running, a bungee trampoline, a human demolition zone and face painting, and the children from Osbourne Lodge Nursery taking part in a ‘Rainbow of Celebrations’ parade through the park at 11.45am.

Around 60 stalls will be pitched up on the day offering a range of crafts, food and information from support agencies.

And of course, the Party in the Park would not be complete without the dog show, organised by All Creatures Great and Small.

Trends Band will be performing on the main stage from 3pm to 4pm, and there will also be free arts and crafts provided by Torfaen Play Service, a magician, tennis and golf activities from Torfaen Sports Development, and much, much more.
