If you’re looking for a fun family day out for Father’s day this year, look no further! Get your trainers on and come along to Sudbury for our annual Sudbury Sports day. There’s something for everyone and a good old laugh guaranteed.

There’ll be plenty of different games and races to keep everyone entertained from sack races to croquet available throughout the day.  We have races for different age groups to make sure everyone is in with a chance of a prize.

For those who don’t fancy getting competitive there’ll be toys and games available for children to play with and some fantastic photo opportunities. Especially for the dads we’ve brought in some locally brewed beers to try and our BBQ will be ready and waiting for anyone needing a bite to eat.

Sports and games have changed through the ages but they haven't become any less popular. Sudbury’s Museum of Childhood has thousands of toys and games in its collection some newer and some hundreds of years old. One thing has remained the same, children still have that unwavering sense of fun and imagination that they always have! Help us to celebrate this wonderful collection by trying some old fashioned games which would have entertained the children of the past. You never know you might just remember some of them!  Reminisce, unleash your inner child and get involved.
