Patchway Events 2024

At the meeting of Patchway Town Council on Tuesday 20th February 2024, it was agreed by a majority of Councillors to press ahead with the organisation of some key events for Patchway for this year.

 

Patchway Town Council has prided itself for a number of years on making community memories with our events and 2024 is no exception.

 

As you would have seen advertised, The Great Patchway Easter Egg wall is being constructed once again at Callicroft House, with the aim to surpass last year’s total amount of donated eggs, which was an amazing 698 eggs donated by residents, businesses and Councillors. We will communicate details about the amount raised closer to Easter. If you wish to help give Patchway children a HOPPY Easter please visit https://www.patchwaytowncouncil.gov.uk/post/help-build-an-easter-egg-wall-for-the-children-of-patchway for more information.

 

The second event of 2024, will see over 30 pupils and staff from our Twin Town in Clermont in France, visit Patchway for the first time in a number of years in March! The Town Council will be holding an official welcome at Callicroft House for the young people then they will be off to meet their fellow counterparts at Patchway Community School. The Town Council have then invited the delegation to attend dinner at the Norman Scott Park Pavilion café, a building that has been admired by our Twinning partners.

 

In April, during the Easter holidays, we will once again be holding our Free Sports Fundays with Signature Sports Coaching at the Jason Franklin 3G Facility in Scott Park. The sessions will only be open to young people in Patchway and have been funded thanks to the Early Help Network Community Grant. The sessions are available to book right now for young people under the age of 12 and more information can be found at www.patchwaytowncouncil.gov.uk/fundays.

 

Also in April 2024, Patchway will also be playing host to the Brabazon Half Marathon and 10K. Patchway is the start and finish line for a brand new running event on 7 April 2024 with the Brabazon Half Marathon and 10k event starting at Waterside Drive with a finishing line at Norman Scott Park!  The mainly off main road route will take in Patchway, Bradley Stoke and Little Stoke with participants undertaking one circuit for the 10k distance, and two circuits for the Half Marathon.

In May 2024, for only the second time since COVID-19 pandemic, a group of 8 young people and their teachers will be attending Patchway for work experience within our local community schools. The group our from our Twin Town of Gauting. The Town Council along with the Friends of Patchway Twinning will be putting on a range of activities for our guests of all the delights that Patchway has to offer.

 

During the May half term, it is hoped that we will have the return of family favourites Crole’s funfair to bring you big rides, big thrills and all the fun of the fair! We will communicate more details as when we can regarding this event.

 

For the first time in 19 years, a delegation of 8 students and 2 teachers will be travelling to our Twin Town, Gauting, for valuable work experience within sectors such as hospitality, tourism and education. The trip has been funded thanks to Almondsbury Charity along with Member Award Funding and The Friends of Patchway Twinning Association. The group will travel in June 2024 and we will report on their progress from this real benefit to our young people.

 

In June 2024, Patchway Town Council will also be marking the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings with an event at the BMX Track in Patchway. There will be live music, food and drink, as well as the lighting of the Patchway Beacon. We hope to have some military vehicles and weapons on show as well as stalls from our local forces.

 

In July 2024, the Mayor of Patchway will be handing out community awards to young people within our community. Chosen by their school, these young people would have gone over and above with their achievements recognised under the Alderman Scott award or through the Patchway Twinning Trophy.

 

NOW, it is time for the BIG ONE. The one you have all been waiting for. The RETURN of Patchway Festival. The theme for this year is THROWBACKS.  There will be LIVE music all day, funfair rides, local market, food and drink, family entertainment and LOTS of surprises! The event will once again be held at Norman Scott Park in July!

 

On the 2nd November 2024, we will be lighting up the sky with our third annual fireworks to music event. Over 3000 people attended the spectacle last year and we will have more of the same for our wonderful residents. There will be lots to see and do at this wonderful community event.

 

On Sunday 17th November, Patchway will be paying its respects to the fallen with our annual Remembrance Service and Parade. There will be a march ending in Norman Scott Park, where the service will commence. 

 

At the end of November, we are proud to announce that we will be holding our second ever Christmas Market and Light Switch on. Building off of the success of the event in 2022, we are planning to bring this back bigger and better than before!


The Mayor’s Christmas Present Appeal will be building on the back of the successful Christmas Present drive in 2022, where over 300 gifts were given out to local schools, youth groups and young people’s community groups. 


This was a scheme derived by Patchway Town Council to ensure that most young people in Patchway had something to have on Christmas Day. This project helped to form close links with Coniston Primary School, Callicroft Primary Academy and Patchway Youth Centre.
