The popular We Love Tamworth extravaganza returns to the Castle Grounds in September and is looking for any groups, organisations, charities or businesses that are interested in booking a stall at the event – all in the name of charity.
A highlight in the town’s annual calendar of events, We Love Tamworth will be back on September 14, bringing with it a jam-packed day of activities for the whole family.
Presented by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team, the exciting event is now in its seventh year. The event brings a variety of entertainment for the day including fairground rides, games, children’s zone, a dog show and the return of Tamworth’s Strongest Man competition.
With record-breaking numbers of visitors from near and far in previous years, why not join the event and hire a space for a stall to promote, advertise or sell your business or organisation?
The stalls arena is again being run by Tamworth Lions club, which has been supporting local charities and causes for over 40 years. Every penny received by Tamworth Lions from the stalls will be used to fund deserving causes across the Tamworth area. Charity stalls are priced at £18 and businesses £35 for a three metre by three metre space.
A variety of stalls have already been confirmed including Tamworth Samaritans, Tamworth Wellbeing & Cancer Support Centre, Tamworth Pantomime Company, Simons Heros, Tamworth and Lichfield Sea Cadets, Private Jim Ferry, The Pea Pod Family, Greyhound Trust Hall Green and Sharon Rose Amateur Dramatics.
There will also be a dedicated Children’s Zone run by Funtopia featuring Bungee runs, obstacle course, soft play, bouncy castles, activity castles, sumo suits and much more.
There is a charge to enter this area, £5 children’s wristbands and £1 adults.
Any charities, businesses, groups or organisations interested in booking a stall at the 2019 event can contact Mark Kyte at Tamworth Lions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mark Kyte said:” Thanks to money raised over the past years at the We Love Tamworth event, we have been able to purchase items such as a specialist wheel chair, a public access defibrillator, help finance Santa trips for Two Rivers Special School and provide a Snowdome party for blind and partially sighted children and young adults.
