Greenhead Gathering 2022 – Fun, free, family events!

Huddersfield’s Greenhead Park will play host to ‘Greenhead Gathering’, a weekend of free, family events that will take place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of July.

From a Massaoke® (mass karaoke) singalong to celebrations of Caribbean and South Asian culture, there will be a lot going on to keep the whole family entertained.  Greenhead Gathering will feature events hosted by Radio Sangam, Huddersfield Carnival Committee and Kirklees Council.

The top field will be transformed into a massive karaoke venue!

On Saturday 16th July, from 2pm til 9pm, people are invited to ‘bring their sing’ and join a fantastic sing-along party with Massaoke®.  The show, which will be on the main field, will start with big family show tunes, followed later in the day by a live band playing pop anthems from across the decades. The giant video lyrics that accompany the show mean everyone can sing together in karaoke style as you’ve never seen it before!

There will be food and drink stalls and people are invited to bring their own chairs or blankets if needed.

Meanwhile on the lower field, from 12pm till 8pm, there will be a family fun day to celebrate and explore the rich culture of the Caribbean and the Windrush legacy. The Vibe Alive event, organised by the Huddersfield Carnival Committee will feature live music, DJs, food and craft stalls, children’s activities and more.

On Sunday 17 July, the Huddersfield Mela returns to Greenhead Park, from 12pm till 5pm, on the main field. The free family fun day, a celebration of South Asian heritage sees the start of the Sangam festival with various events taking place between 18th July and 17th August. There will be live music, food stalls and entertainment for all ages.

Councillor Will Simpson, Cabinet Member for Culture and Greener Kirklees said, “I’m delighted that we are supporting Sangam Festival and Huddersfield Carnival Committee with their family fun day events that are free and inclusive for all. 

“Both days offer a fabulous opportunity for our communities to come together to celebrate the diverse and fascinating heritage we have in Kirklees.

“We want to bring an exciting show to local residents. Massaoke® have performed for crowds of thousands at festivals like Glastonbury and Latitude, and have toured the world from the US to Australia, so this is a real scoop for Kirklees.

“I hope everyone will bring their family, friends and neighbours and have a fantastic time at these free events in the picturesque surroundings of Greenhead Park.”

All three events will take place at Greenhead Park, Trinity Street, Huddersfield, HD1 4DT and are free to attend.

For the safety of all, the organisers respectfully ask that no glass bottles are brought to the above events.
