The Friends of Chapman’s Green organise community events throughout the year. Look out for details of events here, and get in touch via our Contact page if you would like to get involved as a volunteer, a stall holder or a musician.
Our last summer event in 2019 marked 400 years since Chapman’s Green was first recorded and featured entertainment from musicians including Bowes Park Choir and Tindal Folk, a wide range of stalls, plus games, activities, face painting, ‘Wild Energy’ the Bubble Man entertainer and a bouncy castle. The pandemic has since got in the way of our events programme, but hopefully we’ll be able to welcome the community back for more soon.
If your local business or community group and would like to be involved in future events, get in touch!
Picnic on The Green: Sunday 22nd August 2021, 1 – 4pm
We didn’t plan any big events this summer just in case the Covid situation made it difficult, but we’re keen to welcome people onto the old bowling green for an informal picnic. This will be chance for you to meet the Friends, hear some of our ideas for the future of the space (and to hear yours!) and to take a look inside the pavilion which we will soon be sharing with local charity Inspirit. Bring your own food and drink and something to sit on!
Summer Party on The Green 2020: CANCELLED
Like so much this year, we had to cancel our summer gathering for obvious reasons. But watch this space for more events once they become possible again!
Chapman’s Green Christmas Social: Sunday 8th December, 2 – 4pm
Join us for mulled wine, mince pies and maybe even a few carols inside the pavilion. Nothing fancy – just a get together for our friends and supporters to share some ideas for next year’s activities.
