On Saturday 10th April and Sunday 11th April Swindon town centre will come to life with sporting activities, as inSwindon host their first Festival of Sport event.

The weeekend will include live demonstrations, taster sessions competitions plus much, much more.
Members of the public will be encouraged to try items from the huge range of sporting and leisure equipment available in specialist shops.
Swindon Town Football Club, along with stars from the Wildcats ice hockey and Swindon Robins speedway teams are all taking part, bringing their skills, expertise and equipment to the town centre.
Firmly focused on family fun, the festival will also include a series of hands-on sporting activities which will enable shoppers of all ages to get involved and have-a-go.
Among the attractions that will be taking place during a series of sessions at Wharf Green include a Soccer AM style inflatable target goal so dads can test their skills against their children.
Three of the country’s most talented “keepie uppy” experts – Macca, Ash and Lubz – will demonstrate their staggering skills and gravity defying stunts as part of a new freestyle football team.
Swindon Robins will be setting up a “Beat the Starter” facility where the public can test their reaction times in starting speedway bikes.
A speed-cage will also be supplied by Swindon Wildcats for people to test their deftness at smashing the puck into the net. Body combat sessions, Velcro Golf, Hi Ball and Acroflight activities will all be available free of charge while a gymnasium with the latest hi-tech equipment will be set-up for a series of fitness competitions.
There will also be a surfing simulator in the heart of land-locked Swindon where members of the public can practise their bottom turns, reverses and slides – much to the interest and amusement to passers-by.
Plus... Interactive games live on the Big Screen
On Sunday 11th April 11.00am – 3.00pm there will be FREE activities available throughout the day for all the family.
