Bath and North East Somerset’s biggest provider of social housing has come on board as a major sponsor of this summer’s 15th anniversary Party in the Park festival in Peasedown St John.

Curo, who manage 14,000 properties across the South West of England, wanted to show their support for the village’s Party in the Park by signing up to become one of its Golden Sponsors.

Chief Executive, Victor da Cunha, said:

“At Curo, we believe that successful communities are happy, safe and popular places not only because of access to affordable, good quality housing, but equally because people care about their neighbourhood and look out for one another.

“With several hundred homes in the Peasedown area, we are delighted to continue to play our part in supporting the local community in organising such a successful, fun way of bringing people together. We wish everyone attending a fantastic day.”

Party in the Park 2024 officially starts at 11.30 noon on Saturday 8th June on Beacon Field – with festivities running until 7pm.

Attractions include – Zoe Edward’s Burger and Donuts; Dan’s Ice Creams; Appleton Nutrition; Royal Sweet Stall; Somer Valley Farms Beer Tent; Glass Rainbow Jewellery; Inflatable Play Centre, Hook-a-Duck; Penalty Shoot-out and much, much more!

Nathan Hartley is Secretary of the Peasedown Community Trust, the charity that manages the festival. He said:

“Curo’s support means we can put on a festival this summer that will be one to remember!

“We rely heavily on the support of our sponsors to ensure we can cover all of our costs. The finances we need to pay for insurance, equipment and to advertise aren’t cheap, so we’re extremely grateful to Curo. Without them, we would struggle to host this year’s party.”

The event features 7-and-a-half hours of live music and entertainment – with Radio Bath and Reaper Events, the Peasedown Community Civic Award presentation, the Somer Valley Farm Beer Tent, a dog show and a huge range of stalls and attractions.
