Entertainment line-up announced for Party in the Park, thanks to support from major sponsorsSunday 27th May 2018 Leave your thoughts
Some of the most popular and successful entertainment acts in the region will be performing at this year’s Peasedown Party in the Park summer festival on Saturday 9th June.
Since last September bands have been applying to perform – meaning that the full stage line-up was already complete by February.
Party in the Park sets aside a budget of over £1,000 each year to cover the costs of expenses, PA technical support, and payments to the Performing Rights Society so copyright infringement is not breached.
Party in the Park Chairman, Nathan Hartley, said: “A very large proportion of our festival budget goes on entertainment and all the costs we legally have to spend in connection with it. Without support of our major sponsors this year, we really would have struggled to put on the spectacular 10th Anniversary event we have planned.”
Local housing association Curo provided a huge financial boost for Party in the Park 10, which has meant organisers have been able to cover all of the event’s costs.
Victor da Cunha, Curo Chief Executive, said: “We’re proud to support Peasedown Party in the Park again this year, as the festival celebrates its 10th anniversary. The event brings together people of all ages to celebrate their community and enjoy a fun day out with lots of attractions, family activities and live music. Our mission at Curo is to provide great homes, support communities and improve lives – that’s why we wanted to show our support for local residents on this special day for the village.”
Party in the Park is expected to see over 2,500 people come through its gates on June 9th.
