Clowns Parade & Picnic 2016

Clowns Parade and Picnic in the Park 2016

Sunday 15th May 2016 from 2pm  –  Free entry

The Clowns International Parade and Picnic in the Park was part of Clowns International’s Clowns Are Back, weekend Festival 12-16 May 2016, and was organised with help from Hotham Park Heritage Trust.


The Clowns International Parade and Picnic in the Park took place in Hotham Park, Bognor Regis from 2pm on Sunday 15th May. The Clowns paraded through Hotham Park, all dressed in Motley, their traditional costumes. The people in Bognor Regis joined them for an afternoon of merriment, fun and joy.  Many people brought their families and a picnic and had a great time whilst being entertained al fresco by all the clowns who, when asked, joined in and helped eat the picnics!

Hotham Park Heritage Trust encouraged children to join the Clowns International Grand Parade from the London Road gate, with a prize for the best Boy and best Girl dressed clown.

The Picnic in the Park included the Chichester City Brass Band playing on the Bandstand, which had been made possible by sponsorship from Tesco Bognor Regis.

This event in Hotham Park was FREE and the clowns were delighted to be invited back to Bognor Regis, working with the Hotham Park Heritage Trust on the Sunday, and to meet once more friends old and new.

This was a fantastic fun day and one not to be missed.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust also organise and run Hotham Park Country Fair and Carols in the Park and Father Christmas.  It is a Registered Charity and all work is undertaken by a group of unpaid volunteers.  If you would like to become a member or can volunteer to help in any way please contact us through this website.  We would love to hear from you.
