Owls take over Hillsborough Park for another year!
14 May 2014
One of the city’s biggest outdoor events, Owls in the Park, is confirmed as taking place this year on Sunday 13 July.
The huge family fun day, hosted by Sheffield Wednesday and sponsored by the Brooklyn Steakhouse, is now its third year and expected to once more draw thousands of people to this unique event.
Held at Hillsborough Park, Owls in the Park again promises to be a spectacular day for the whole family.
This year, visitors can expect to experience a host of activities to suit everyone. 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!
Marcus Brameld, Community Manager at Sheffield Wednesday, said: “Owls in the Park is a fantastic event for all the family and always promises to be a fun day for everyone involved. It’s the perfect way for the club to meet the fans and give something back for their ongoing support throughout the year.
“It’s brilliant for Sheffield Wednesday to collaborate with local charities, organisations and local performers. We are all excited about the 2014 event and as ever, wish to welcome as many people to the park as possible.”
Owls in the Park 2014 is free to attend and takes place on Sunday 13 July, starting at 11.00am and finishing at 5:30pm.
