Disability Awareness Day
Sunday 16th July 2017
Disability Awareness Day has five strands interwoven into a colourful, inspiring, fun and informative day out.
Nearly 500 spaces will be taken by our exhibitors including organisations from the voluntary, statutory and business sectors all working to a common goal of "Promoting Independence Throughout Life & Work", with support groups and services, equipment, transport, technology, holidays, benefits, employment, education, training, mobility, leisure, recreation, sport and much more.
As well as finding out about a variety of sporting opportunities, there will be chances to ‘have a go’ at participating in Scuba Diving, Wheelchair Fencing, Archery, Golf, Tennis, Basketball, Rugby, Martial Arts, New Age Curling and Small Bore Rifle Shooting. The activities are provided by qualified coaches and instructors from WDP, Warrington Wolves Foundation and Active Cheshire who are also sponsors of the Sports Zone.
There is an exciting programme of performing arts in the Arts Marquee with audience seating for up to 600 people. Last year the highlights include internationally acclaimed Carly Ryan, Ella Together, Warrington BSL Signing Choir and female vocalists Hollie Caddock and Bexi Owen.
The Main Arena line up in 2017 includes La Bomba Samba Band, the Guide Dog display Team and Vale Royal Falconry. Check back to see what else we have planned for 2017.
Children's Entertainment includes something for all abilities with all the fun of the fair provided by Chadwick's Family Fairground Rides. Walton Hall Rangers will be pleased to see you visiting the Walton Hall Zoo.
As you can see it will be an action packed day for those many thousands of people who make their way to Walton Hall Gardens on the 16th!
