The Big Ards and North Down Footie Family Picnic

Ards and North Down Borough Council is inviting families to join the ranks of the ‘Green and White Army’ and enjoy a family friendly screening of the Northern Ireland UEFA Euro 2016 matches in parks across the borough.

As players representing our wee country play their hearts out in France, families can dress from head to toe in green and white and cheer them on at the picnic events.

Of course fans supporting Poland, Ukraine, Germany or any of the other teams competing are very welcome to come along also!

Mums, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all the kids can enjoy the games in a fun environment on big screens, and bring along their picnics with deckchairs and blankets.

Families can view the matches and soak in the great atmosphere at the following venues:

Sunday 12th June at 5pm                NI v Poland in Ward Park, Bangor

Thursday 16th at 5pm                      NI v Ukraine in Londonderry Park, Newtownards

Tuesday 21st at 5pm                        NI v Germany in Millisle Beach Park, Millisle
