This year’s Upperby Gala is set to be a great family day out with entertainment to suit all ages.
The programme for the popular community gala will include a packed programme of fun activities and, this year, visitors will be encouraged to bring and share a picnic and be part of a community Big Lunch, supported by the Friends of Hammond’s Pond. The Big Lunch brings millions of people together across the UK to share food and fun on the first weekend in June. People are the key ingredient, and everyone is invited because great things happen when we meet and chat over a bite to eat. For more information about the Big Lunch, visit www.carlislepartnership.carlisle.city
Organised by Carlisle City Council, Upperby Gala, will provide fun for all the family on Bank Holiday Monday, between 1pm and 4pm.
