Family Fun Day to be opened by Kid's TV presenter!

Horfield Baptist Church are excited to announce that children’s television presenter Naomi Wilkinson will launch their Fun Day on Saturday 19th March at Horfield Baptist Church on the Gloucester Road.

Known to millions of children from Channel 5’s milkshake! Naomi not only presented the popular kids’ programme for 10 years, but she also produced the show. Naomi grew up in neighbouring Henleaze where she attended the local primary school and then Colston Girl’s school. Her dancing tuition started at Westbury School of Dance in Westbury Park from the age of 4 to 16. She then progressed to the London College of Dance. Her entertainment career first took off at Butlins where she was one of their famous Redcoats and her television break came when she presented the breakfast show Wakey Wakey for ON Digital.  Following the success of milkshake! Naomi went on to present many other children’s programmes. Most recently, Naomi has worked closely with Steve Backshall, co-presenting the exciting Saturday morning show Live ‘n’ Deadly for BBC2 and CBBC, travelling the length and breadth of Britain in search of the UK’s most deadly animals and enjoying some awesome activities along the way.

Bristol’s Got Talent!

Naomi will open the event at 10am with a Party Set and will be on the judging panel for the talent competition ‘Bristol’s Got Talent!’. If you sing, dance, recite, play an instrument, perform comedy, magic tricks or gymnastic skills you could find yourself in the final of ‘Bristol’s Got Talent’. The competition is open to all local children (5-14 years). There will be 3 age categories ( 5-7 years; 8-11 years; 12-14 years), auditions and prizes.  It costs just £1 per entry.  Kids can take part individually or in groups of up to four. The closing date is Monday 14th March.  For full details visit the website and click on ‘Events’.  Bishopston Matters is pleased to be sponsoring this event and looks forward to a brilliant display of performance skills from local children.

For those under 5’s that want to get involved too, a Fancy Dress competition has been organised. It will take place at 11am in the church, on the theme ‘A Character from a Book’.  Entries for the day is free for those in costume and there will be prizes for the winners and runners up.

As well as the talent competition there are many more activities for everyone to enjoy, including… A nearly new sale, Face painting, Craft activities, Youth activities (including use of the Wii), Bouncy Castle, Circus Skills and much more!

Doors will be open from 9:30am – 4:30pm.  All proceeds will go towards “Creating Space for All”, the project raising funds for the on-going improvement of the Horfield Baptist buildings to help make the venue an accessible place for the whole of the surrounding community.

If you would like to run a stall or an activity at this event, or have As-New children’s toys, clothes, DVDs or books in very good condition which you are willing to donate, please contact the church office as soon as possible e-mail or call on 0117 924 3608.

We look forward to seeing you there!
