Funday Sunday is a hugely popular family event that takes part in Horsham Park during the summer. Funday Sunday first took place in 2017 as part of the inaugural Horsham Festival. It was a collaboration between Horsham Rotary Club and the Horsham Festival Team.
Visit Horsham were committee members and trustees of Horsham Festival during the first two years. Many of our members were also involved in helping establish both Horsham Festival and Funday Sunday.
Sadly, like so many other events, Funday Sunday has not taken place since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, but for context, we have left the 2019 Funday Sunday description below:
*** 2019 Funday Sunday ***
Horsham’s hugely successful annual Family Event returns to Horsham Park on Sunday 7th July. This year the event will include the finale of the fantastic Horsham Children's Parade, and the incredible ‘Titan the Robot’ Show...plus the usual plethora of traders, charities, community organisations, sports have-a-go areas, Bensons Giant Funfair, Street Food Stalls, and a stage and display arena compered by TV’s Dave Benson Phillips and packed with local talent....including Tomfoolery, Ollie Heath, Amber Titchenor and Discounted ... as well as choirs, musicians, drama and dance groups…..and last year’s stars ….the amazing ‘Horsham Acro’ Gymnastic display.
Titan the Robot (courtesy of Horsham District Council’s Year of Culture) will be a sure fire hit with kids and adults alike…….. even though he might prove somewhat frightening to the very young. This 8ft, 160kg walking robot will delight and amaze children with his antics and sheer size.
Over 750 of Horsham’s primary school children are taking part in The Children’s Parade displaying a joyous celebration of creativity – this spectacle of imaginative models and costumes, upbeat music and dance, will parade through Horsham’s town centre and park – uniting schools, children, families and the wider community through a magical and fun shared experience. The parade will depart from the Denne Road Car Park at 11.30 arriving in Horsham Park just after noon where you can learn about the children's creative journey and get involved in some fun art activities yourself!
