Before you grab your children, their teddies and favourite toys and head for the Interislander Teddy Bears' Picnic - please remember that the location changed.

Over the past few years, it took place on at Anderson Park. This year - it's taking place on Sunday (30 January) at Frank Kitts Park. It takes place from 12 noon until 4.45pm. Part of our Summer City festival - this event usually attracts thousands of children and teddies.

Council Community Events Manager Rebecca Hardie says public transport is absolutely recommended.

"There simply isn't enough parking in the area to accommodate everyone," says Rebecca. "If you can, leave your car at home and take the bus - or walk if the little legs can manage it."

Entertainment on the day includes Zappo the Magician, Funky Monkeys, Harry the Clown and The Crocodettes. And there'll be face painting, Little Dribblers Football and rides.
