Preparations Under Way for 16th Annual Nailsea Community Skate Park Festival

Organisers of the Nailsea Community Skate Park Festival have confirmed this year’s date, which celebrates the 16th occasion of the festival, as Saturday 9thJune 2018, 1pm – 5pm.

Great progress has already been made with plans for the day, and as well as the skateboard, scooter and BMX competitions on the recently rebuilt Skate Park at Millennium Park, there will be numerous stalls and activities to participate in.

As with any event such as this, the organisers are keen to increase the size of the team as the event grows and are on the look out for volunteers. Anybody interested in helping out in any way should get in touch with Phil Williams (festival director) at

Due to personnel changes at the ‘Link’ there will be no formal showcase partnership this year, however the team running the Skate Park Festival are still very keen to highlight what goes on in Nailsea and the surrounding areas. Therefore, application forms for a stall or an area, if show casing a sport, will be sent out shortly to those that had been involved before. If, however you would like to receive a form in advance, or haven’t been involved before, please e-mail

The event is run purely from local funding donations and takings on the day itself, both of which the organisers are extremely grateful for, so if you would be interested in becoming an official sponsor, or would like to find out more details of the opportunities that exist, please contact

Huge thanks to all those already involved in the planning of this year’s event, particularly those from Holy Trinity and Trendlewood church, Nailsea Town Council, Christians Together in Nailsea and all the individual volunteers giving up their time.

Festival updates will follow via the Facebook pages, Nailsea Skatepark Project and Nailsea Skate Park and Activities Showcase group.

The festival organisers look forward to seeing you on 9th June 2018, for what has become a significant date in the Nailsea and district calendar. After last year’s event was curtailed by afternoon rain, organisers and park users are praying that this year the sun will be shining!
