To all our wonderful supporters, bands, crew, security, concessions and volunteers we were hoping to bring you positive news about this year’s proposed event, planned for Saturday 19 June. However, since the government announcement that restrictions on the opening of venues and events will not be lifted before 21 June, the committee greatly regrets that this year’s Party in the Park will be postponed until 2022.
Taking everything into consideration, we came to a unanimous decision that it would be too risky to consider moving the date until later this summer. Although the vaccination means that the prospects for events are looking less bleak for the future, we are still in the grip of the pandemic. In line with many other large and small festivals who have also postponed, we consider the risks too great currently to proceed this year.
We are, however, considering options for other live music events later in the year. and are hoping to give fuller details soon on social media and on our website. WATCH THIS SPACE!
