The countdown is on to one of the city’s biggest outdoor events, Owls in the Park which takes place at Hillsborough Park on Sunday 13 July!
The mass family fun day is set to be bigger than ever with even more confirmed entertainment, local catering units and traders from around the area set to make an appearance.
The day, which is hosted by Sheffield Wednesday and sponsored by the Brooklyn Steakhouse, is now in its third year and expected to attract thousands of people to the event.
Joining headlining artists, The Darlingtons are music acts Echo and the Empress, The Dunwells and Kartica plus many more due to be announced. New for 2014 is an acoustic tent which showcase even more of Sheffield’s musical talent.
Along with appearances from Wednesday players, other activities include live music, a funfair, catering and fun games at various stalls around the park. The Owls’ mascots, Ozzie and Barney, will also make a special appearance!
Supporters will have the opportunity to get the autographs of their heroes and pose for photos – together with buying Season Tickets and official Memberships, which will be on sale on the day.
The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme, the club’s charitable arm, will host various taster sessions and activities which will include a World Cup themed football tournament, inflatable pitches and a range of community stalls.
Coaches from the programme will also deliver free of charge sessions in futsal, tennis, basketball and volleyball.
Local children’s hospice, Bluebell Wood - the Community Programme’s official charity partner - will be holding an official bucket collection in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the organisation.
In addition, Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, Royal Society for the Blind and Support Dogs will join the day with special activities and entertainment throughout what promises to be a fun-filled afternoon!
Sheffield Wednesday’s new Instagram page, @swfcofficial, will now let guests use the hashtag #owlsinthepark2014 on their pictures to join in the fun on the day! The club will also be posting images throughout the day to capture the moments of the event.
