Picnic in the Park

Pack up your picnics, gather family and friends and check out Chorley’s Astley Park for an afternoon of free fun, activities and entertainment at the town’s annual Picnic in the Park event.


As part of Check Out Chorley week (Saturday 26 May to Sunday 3 June), Chorley Council is bringing lots of free fun to Astley Park including activities for children like sports, games, arts and crafts, football challenges, a climbing wall, Punch and Judy shows and more. There will also be the opportunity to meet a character from a popular children’s book and for a small charge, children can enjoy some small fairground rides and a bouncy castle.

Also don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore Astley Hall and the exhibitions in Astley Farmhouse.

Anyone driving to Picnic in the Park is being encouraged to be considerate of the residents of Astley Village park at one of the town centre car parks, which are free on Sundays and are only a short walk from the Park Road or Queens Road entrances to Astley Park. Hallgate car park will be open for blue badge holders only.

Sunday 3 June, 11am-3pm, Astley Park.
