Helpful advice for those attending Watford Celebration on Monday 30th August.

Car parking: It’s a Bank Holiday so it will be busy. If the Cassiobury Park car park is full, you can park in the streets, but please take note of the times you can park there as traffic wardens will be around. You could also come a bit earlier and park in the town car parks, Gade and Avenue are the nearest, and walk from there.

The Bandstand: It is near Café Cha at the Shepherds Road entrance, WD18 7DY. There is a big Colourscape event right next door but don’t be put off…we will be at the bandstand! A Welcome Desk covered in yellow will be near the footpath to guide you in. Volunteers will be wearing yellow t-shirts and yellow badges, who can help with any queries.

The event: it is a multi-cultural show with performers from many backgrounds, along with stalls of various charitable and faith groups. We are most honoured to welcome DJ Lee Partridge to host the programme from 1.30-5.00pm. He has a breakfast show on Vibe 107.6 FM, and he really enjoyed hosting Celebration online last year.

Sitting area: Please note there are very limited number of benches so please bring your own chairs or a rug to sit on the grass.

Food and drink: There will be no food or drinks available this year, but you are very welcome to bring your own picnic while watching the show, or you can buy very nice food and drinks at the Cha Café, which is near the Bandstand, or from Daisy’s which is down by the Hub and the paddling pools. Both these areas have toilets available too.

Lost children: The Welcome Desk is where you take lost children as there will be several people there to look after them while an urgent announcement is made from the stage to locate the parents or guardians, or the lost child.

First Aid: There is a St John Ambulance first aid tent over by the silver box to the left of the bandstand. The volunteers in green will go round the site but will be mostly based there in case of any problems.

Health and safety: A public safety briefing will be given at regular intervals, and volunteers will be going round sanitising chairs and so on, and litter picking, and ensuring social distancing, and every effort has been made to keep the site as safe as possible.

But most of all, you are asked to have an enjoyable day!
