2pm – 6pm

Come and join us for an afternoon of activities, competitions, crafts, information and performance.


For the first time at the Kingsgrove Community Day, there will be two competitions that you will be able to participate in, both judged by the Mayor of Wantage.

Dog show

We are especially pleased to announce that there will be a light-hearted dog show, with such classes as “Cutest Puppy“, “Best Dressed Dog“, “Best Young Handler” and more. You can find all the details here.

Children’s fancy dress

Does your child like fancy dress? Dressing up as a Marvel or Disney character or their favourite star from the TV? 

If so, join us for our fancy dress competition for children under 14. 

The winner will receive a £25 voucher, generously donated by Toy Planet in Wantage.


Kids Area

Keep the little ones entertained with a mix of things to make and do, including creating “Kingsgrove Bunting“, glitter tattoos, face-painting and more!

Developer Information

Drop by for a check-in and chat with those organisations active on our estate, including Preim, St. Modwen and Taylor Wimpey!

Village Centre, Community, and Faith

A variety of stalls to get or give support, and to get involved in our community!

Sports, Leisure, and Crafts

Spend some time getting active: with crafts, cricket, and more!

Food & drink

Should you feel peckish whilst attending the event, there will be a variety of food & drink stalls ready for you to buy from, including “The Happy Plaice” (fish and chips), “Raffaele” (ice cream) and “Chequers“, who will be bringing a variety of styles of food with them, including vegetarian items. Of course, this is all in addition to “The Heritage Bakery” serving their usual food from the Kingsgrove Cafe.


As in previous years, there will be music throughout the afternoon.


6pm – 9:30pm

Follow on from your afternoon visit with a trip to our “Hog Roast & Music Night”

The evening event at Wantage Primary Academy will host live music from local band Studio Six. A delicious hog roast will be available, as will other food and vegetarian alternatives. There will also be a bar. 

The evening event will be ticketed, so as to ensure that the school won’t be overcrowded. Tickets are available here. We are mindful of the current economic situation so are offering the tickets on a donation basis – please give what you can. We hope to have tickets available at the afternoon event in the Public Square but if the maximum number have already been sold, this won’t be possible. As a result, we encourage you to book early!
