Feel Good family events to return to Rochdale in 2024

Free summer fun will be returning to Rochdale next year with Feel Good Family Picnic events staged.

The popular new event for families was launched in July, with more than 9,500 people attending events in Heywood, Middleton, Littleborough and Rochdale.

To coincide with the Summer Olympics in Paris, the theme for next year’s Feel Good Family Picnic will be the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.

Line-up details will be announced in the spring but the event will include days of free fun activities, performances, music, sports, dance, theatre and shows for children of all ages in local parks and once again visitors will be encouraged to bring a picnic.

Councillor Janet Emsley said: “The support we had for this new event was absolutely superb and the feedback fantastic, so I am very excited to confirm it will be returning. Planning is at an early stage but activities will reflect our Olympics theme and we’ll be creating another amazing programme of free things to do.”

Dates and locations will be confirmed in the new year.

The Feel Good Family Picnic will be staged by the council in partnership with Without Walls, a consortium of festivals and arts organisations bringing fantastic outdoor arts to people in towns and cities across England.

It will be supported through the government’s Shared Prosperity Fund and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).
