Relive Fort Royal memories on August Bank Holiday

The Friends of Fort Royal are hosting a fun family event in the Park on Bank Holiday Monday – and everyone is welcome.

At the event, which takes place on Monday 26 August from 4.00pm to 7.00pm, there will be live entertainment from Orchard Band and Drumlove, with the opportunity to join in a live Zumba session too.

Afternoon teas will be on sale, thanks to support from local company SouthCo.

Park visitors will also have the opportunity to try out Fort Royal Park’s treasure trail, which uses QR codes to link through to videos of local people’s memories.

Cllr Lynn Denham, Chair of the Friends of Fort Royal group said: “Come and join us on bank holiday Monday for a fun and friendly community celebration.

“We hope you will enjoy following the treasure trail too – so many people love this park, and it’s fascinating listening to their memories - some historic, some personal.  It gives you a real slice of Worcester ‘life’, all of which took place in Fort Royal Park.”

The videos record the memories of residents living close to the park, children from Stanley Road Primary School, the Worcester Muslim Welfare Association, local historians and the Worcester Central Mosque.

The videos of their experiences have been embedded into a smartphone activated treasure trail through the park.  Six small brass plaques each display a QR code which links to the different videos.  Hard copy leaflets with a map of the trail will also be available at the Bank Holiday event.
