A park in Stafford will be hosting a roadshow to welcome visitors on their way to a top sporting event on Cannock Chase.
Music, food and drinks are on the menu at the award-winning Victoria Park to help create an upbeat atmosphere for spectators as they head for the Commonwealth Games Mountain Bike event on Wednesday (3 August).
The men’s and women’s mountain biking is being held on the Chase with thousands of visitors expected to make the journey to the event via shuttle bus, after arriving by train at Stafford Railway Station - which is on the doorstep of Victoria Park.
