THE Orbital Shopping Park will host a fun day full of activities this Saturday.

Youngsters can enjoy balloon animals, facepainting and sports games, try a virtual reality experience, watch gymnastic demonstrations, and have a look around 20 stalls from local organisations which are offering activities for children throughout the summer holidays.

Popular film characters will be wandering around and greeting guests - last time, Elsa and Spider-Man popped by.

The activities fair will be held from 10am to 12pm on July 16 and is organised by North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson.

He said: "Whether you're looking for ideas to keep the kids busy this summer, or your youngster wants to join a local club, please do pop down to see what's on offer.

"Or just come down to join in with some of the fun activities."
