The will be free fun and frolics for all at Cliffe Castle park and Museum Garden Party on Sunday (July 30).

The whole event will be buzzin’ with carnival rides, music, dancing and the Airedale Beekeepers observational bee hive.

The event, organised by Bradford Council, the Cliffe Castle Park Conservation Group and Bluefruit Promotions will include take-away high tea and garden advice.

It starts at 12noon and lasts until 6pm. Parking will be limited and visitors are asked to use public transport or town centre car parks.

The £4.5 million on-going restoration of Keighley’s Cliffe Castle park, has been supported thanks to National Lottery players.

The restoration of the park’s Victorian features first began in June 2016 when Bradford Council successfully bid £3.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Parks for People programme.

Coun Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Culture, said: “We hope lots of people will come and have a great time at the museum and park.

“Visitors can get an exciting look at how the work is going so far with work on lots of Victorian features already completed.

“Cliffe Castle has been one of the district’s favourite destinations since it became a public park and museum more than 50 years ago. The HLF project will ensure it continues to be a delight for the coming years.”
