Richard Gooding OBE, Chief Executive of London City Airport commented; “In previous years Fun Day has been held on site at the airport but with the record number of visitors the attendance has now exceeded the airport’s capacity. We are pleased that the London Development Agency has granted the airport permission to use Thames Barrier Park where we can continue to make this event even better.”
The main attractions this year include a kids and adult zone offering a number of sporting and dance workshops; an inflatables and side show area along with a number of delightful entertainment acts in the giant garden area.
