Owls in the Park set to be biggest day yet

Thousands are expected at one of the city’s fastest growing outdoor events Owls in the Park on Sunday, July 13.

The day at Hillsborough Park will include appearances from Sheffield Wednesday players, live music, a fun fair, catering, World Cup-themed games and a variety of stalls.

The event organised by the club is now in its third year and aims to be a complete family fun day.

Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, the SWFC Community Programme’s official charity, will be holding an official bucket collection in a bid to raise funds.

Additional beneficiaries - the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, the Royal Society for the Blind and Support Dogs - will also be represented on the day.

Traders wanting to set up stalls are being urged to book their spots as soon as possible, as all the catering outlets have been allocated in record time.

Trade manager Julie Wilson said: “Owls in the Park is a great event and is now established as one of the biggest of its kind in Sheffield both for business and wider awareness in the city.”
