Desima Connolly, Cultural Facilities Development Manager, said: “We thought hosting a Teddy Bears’ Picnic at Flowerfield as part of our Open House events would be the perfect way to honour songwriter Jimmy Kennedy and his local associations, particularly as he wrote the lyrics to the internationally known Teddy Bears’ Picnic. This is a fantastic way for everyone to see what Flowerfield has to offer, meet the team and enjoy a creative and fun day out.”
