Plymouth Summer Of Fun…

Every weekend, during the school holidays, there will be events and activities for everyone to enjoy. Steve Hughes, the Chief Executive of the Plymouth City Centre Company, said:

  “The summer holidays are a fantastic opportunity for families to come together and spend time having fun.

 “Whether you’re looking to enjoy a circus spectacle, get involved with some hands on activities, bring the little ones along for story time or challenge your friends and family to some ping pong, Plymouth Summer of Fun has plenty going on to bring you in to Plymouth City Centre.”

Plymouth Summer of Fun really does promise to bring a variety of entertainment across the holiday period, from circus workshops to dance, story time, arts and crafts and sport, all rounded off with the grand finale of the West End Carnival and 60th Anniversary of Plymouth Market on 31st  August.

Plymouth Bike Day…

What’s more, if you’re a fan of Plymouth Bike Nights don’t miss Plymouth Bike Day on the Piazza on 27th  July. This is a local ‘meet’ for bikers from Plymouth and South East Cornwall in support of local charities.

Pete Batten, one of the Bike Night organisers, said:

 “The Plymouth Motorcycle Club and their supporters are really excited to be working alongside the Plymouth City Centre Company to bring the very popular Plymouth Bike Nights events held on the Hoe Promenade for the last nine years into the City Centre for the first time as ‘Plymouth Bike Day’ to the Piazza.”

Also attending will be Devon and Cornwall Air Ambulance charities, the Chestnut Appeal, British Heart Foundation, Devon Freewheelers Blood Bikes along with many of local motorcycle traders displaying the very latest new motorcycles.
