Gedling Gala: Time, date and location revealed for this year’s event

This year's event will take place on Willow Park on Saturday, July 1.


Gedling Gala organisers have revealed that this year’s event will take place on Saturday, July 1 at Willow Park.

The Gala is a fun, family day out, where the community comes together and raises funds to support charities in the local area.

This year the Gala will be collecting donations for three local charities that were chosen from a public Facebook vote.

The three charities that have been chosen by the public for 2023 are :

Organisers told Gedling Eye that they’d really welcome any of the local community who’d like to get involved entertaining the public, and helping raise funds with them.

Zanda Dibbo-Pajączkowski, Gedling Gala chairman, said “If anyone would like to help out, they’re more than welcome – we’re always in need of extra help on the day, setting up etc – many hands make light work, and it’s all for a good cause. Please do join our Facebook group, and feel free to share any ideas you may have to help.

“So far we have a DJ & music, with entertainment from local groups, dancers, gymnasts, a choir, cheerleaders, etc. There will be food & refreshments, rides, bouncy castles, hook-a-duck, a raffle, and many other things to see and do.”

The Gala team are also running an art competition that will be going out to all the local schools – the winning school will receive a £200 voucher to spend in the Local Art Shop, as well as prizes for four age groups based on overall talent & imagination, not just skill. A copy of the Local Art competition can be found on the Gedling Gala website, and Facebook page. The Gala’s theme this year is Conservation.
