Family Fun Day 2024

We can’t wait to bring you Thatcham Family Fun Day 2024 on Sunday June 30th 202411am till 4pm at Henwick Worthy Sports Ground!

Thatcham Town Council’s flagship event, Thatcham Family Fun Day, returns to Henwick Worthy Sports Field for the 24th year and is set to be bigger and better than ever! Over 10,000 people joined us in 2023, and with lots of old favourites returning, including the classic funfair, and lots of new stalls, food and entertainment to discover, the Family Fun Day will continue to be what many consider to be Thatcham’s best free entry day out of the year!

We’re still planning the 2024 Family Fun Day but have a look at what the 2023 Family Fun Day had to offer:

CHILDRENS’ AREAS

There was a wide range of activities including the fun fair, zorbing, an inflatable assault course and a fabulously fun Land Train! Returning attractions include the petting farm, circus skills with Juggling Jake, and Punch & Judy.

FOOD AND DRINK

With the biggest offering of street food and drinks we have ever had, there is something for everyone. From fish & chips and burgers, Caribbean, Indian and Mexican food and plenty of sweet treats (including plenty of gluten free and vegan options) you won’t be going home hungry!

ROTARY CLUB CLASSIC CAR SHOW

The ever-popular classic car show, delivered by the Rotary Club, will be bigger than ever with an anticipated 150 classic and vintage cars, motorbikes and other vehicles on display. Take the new Land Train rom the Car Show to the Kids Zone and Petting Farm.

STREET THEATRE

Prepare to be dazzled by some of the best street entertainment around. You will belly laugh through the raucous ride that is Falconry Dismay showcasing the talents of three majestic ‘birds of prey’* and their expert handler; and the Glitter Pickers, who know that all good parties start with a (g)litter pick. Prepare for some hilarious behaviour whilst they tidy up the planet, one sequin at a time!
*not real birds!
