This incredibly popular event, a Harpenden tradition, sees Lydekker Park come alive with teddy bears and their small owners.

The fun-filled day offers a variety of free activities for children, which in years past has included face
painting, a bouncy castle, crafts, and just-for-kids live entertainment.

The Town Council will be having its annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic in Lydekker Park (off Sun Lane) on Wednesday 7 August from 11am to 2pm. This event will run alongside National Play Day. The park will be alive with Teddy Bears and their small owners, as they will be making the most of the sun and the FREE entertainment on offer. Come and join the Town Mayor for this family event with lots to keep you entertained in Harpenden’s secret garden. Don’t forget your picnic and your teddy bear. For any further information please contact Harriet Tamke at Harpenden Town Council on Tel: 01582 463668 or

This event is in partnership with Lyndhurst Financial Management, the Principal Sponsor for our 2019 Lively in Lydekker summer event series!
