After a two-year break, Peasedown St John’s popular Party in the Park festival is to return next year as part of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Organisers in Peasedown St John have now met to start planning the event, which is expected to see crowds of over 2,500 people attending!

The festival hasn’t been held in the village since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Festival Chairman and Co-Founder, Nathan Hartley, said:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be planning another Party in the Park festival in Peasedown St John. And after a two-year break, what better way to make a comeback than to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II?!

“The 70-year reign of a monarch is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and as part of the national four-day Bank Holiday, we’ll be celebrating it in style here in Peasedown St John. After a difficult few years, this will be the perfect opportunity for the community to come together, get out the bunting and wave the national flag.”

The festival’s Bookings Manager is Cllr Karen Walker, who will be working over the next nine months to book lots of stalls and attractions – making Peasedown’s 12th Party in the Park the best yet.

She said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with positive messages from the public who are looking forward to Party in the Park’s return. Those that have attended any of the last 11 festivals have really enjoyed themselves.

“Due to public demand and interest, I’d encourage anyone who wants to run a stall to place their booking as soon as possible. One of our key aims every year is to build community spirit and bring people together.”

Peasedown’s Jubilee Party in the Park will be held on Beacon Field on Friday 3rd June 2022, from 12noon – 7pm.

More details will follow in the coming months, but sponsors already include St John’s Church, B&NES Council and Bath College.

Bookings for bands and performers open in January 2022.

This will be a family event not to be missed.
