St. Bartholomew’s Church on Clyde Road in Ballsbridge is organising a family fun day at the BartsFest annual summer fair taking place on Saturday August 27th, from 11am to 3pm.

People of all ages are welcome for a family day out in the grounds of St. Bartholomew’s church.

There will be a fancy dress, the dog show will start at 1.30pm. There will be children’s entertainment including face painting, a tuck shop for children and a stall with cakes and buns. A professional entertainer will also be performing for visitors.

There will be a sale of work, with bric a brac, books, baby clothes, women’s accessories and handbags, CD’s, DVD’s and a raffle all taking place in the afternoon.

The local fire brigade from Donnybrook are hoping to take part in this event, showing the children the importance of fire safety and allowing them a good look of the fire truck and its equipment under close supervision.

Music will be played from the credited choir of St. Bartholomew’s Church. There will be plenty provided for guests with a barbeque on the day.

Entry costs €2 for adults and €5 for families, and these proceeds go towards St. Bartholomew’s Church and all its charitable functions in the community of Dublin 4.

St. Bartholomew’s Church is located within walking distance of the American embassy near the junction of Pembroke Road and Herbert Park. This is an event for those looking for an afternoon of fun, good food, good company and somewhere for the kids to play.
