Top Events This Summer
Summer is just around the corner and with the events calendar jam-packed this year, we decided to put together Lynk’s top events to look out for over the coming months.
The People’s Park plays host to one of the best food markets in the country every Sunday from 11-4pm, and with Summer fast approaching it is the perfect way to end your week. From hand picked berries, to slow cooked BBQ, there is something for everyone here and you will also find non food-related services such as a bicycle repair stand for any punctures that need fixing!
