Bridgnorth's Teddy Bears Picnic will return this summer

A popular summer event is returning to Bridgnorth this July.

Bridgnorth Teddy Bears Picnic at the castle grounds in Bridgnorth last year

Bridgnorth Town Council has been putting on the Teddy Bears Picnic after the event was dreamed up by a former mayor several years ago.

Last year more than 100 children and people of all ages attended, bringing with them their favourite cuddly toys.

There was a Best Dressed Teddy Bear competition, as well as a bouncy castle, face painting, puppet shows and of course, picnic baskets full of refreshments.

The town council has now confirmed that the 2024 Teddy Bear's Picnic is set to take place on Thursday, July 25 between 11am and 2pm at the Castle Grounds.

The town council has said any stallholders interested in booking a stall for the event should fill in the application on the council's Facebook page:
