Roll up, Roll up – this is more than just another Walk in the Park!

I love a good walk in the park, the sun shining on your face, the fragrant scent of grass and flowers and of course the excited cries of the children running ahead, hiding and jumping out at each other, then rolling down the grassy hills or racing each other to the swings...

However on Sunday 30th June 2013, visitors to London’s Battersea Park will be treated to a unique and wonderful cocktail of 3 amazing walking challenges, live stage music, circus sideshows, stalls, dancing, delicious food, stilt walkers, clowns and escapades and experiences for all. This will not be just another walk in the park!

There’ll be plenty of entertainment for the children, including popular Children’s TV Stars Andy and Sid from Cbeebies, Strictly Come Dancing star's Anton, Erin, Darren, Lillia, Matt and Nicole. Tickets for Andy and Sid’s shows, and for Dance the Dance workshops are available at or on 01483 741430.

There’ll also be free live music al fresco in the park from X-factor star Misha B, chart-topping band Sam and the Womp, singer/songwriter Sam Gray and the Urban Voices Collective, the amazing singers known for performing at the Closing Ceremony of London 2012. 

And the good news is there is Free entry into Sun Walk City all day Sunday! 

The main event is all about raising money for very worthy causes! Walk the Walk has raised over £86 million for vital breast cancer causes, since it launched 17 years ago. This money has funded research and helped to improve the lives of those who live with cancer.  

Some fabulous people will be taking part in one of three Power Walking challenges - a 5K, 10K, or Half Marathon. They'll not only have a day of unforgettable experiences and visual delight, but getting fitter, reaching goals, and raising both money and awareness for breast cancer. 

To add to the fun and keep up tradition, all walkers over the age of 13 will wear the Walk the Walk trademark of brightly decorated bras. The theme this year is all about the Circus, so if you're taking part, get decorating now! Entries to walk are now closed but you can sponsor a walker here.

So if you are in London, why not head along for what promises to be a fun filled day in the park? Whether you are taking part in the walks, watching the shows or just listening to live music in the sunshine every penny raised is one more weapon in the battle against cancer that effects the lives of so many.

Gaby Roslin, Radio presenter on BBC London 94.9 said:
"The SunWalk is such a family affair and the fact that we can all do the walk, together, as a family and raise money for such an incredible charity, means we wouldn't miss it for the world. As a patron of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, to whom Walk the Walk has granted over £18 million, I feel overwhelmed on the day, seeing all those women and children who are there to raise money too, because someone they know had or has cancer. Nina is an inspiration, what an amazing woman. I feel blessed to know her and to be a part of this".
