Your Views Matter: Peasedown festival organisers ask for your feedback

Tuesday 1st August 2023 Published by Leave your thoughts

Almost 3,000 people packed out this year’s Peasedown’s Party in the Park summer festival in June – making it one of the most successful to date!

Sponsored by St John’s Church, Curo, Truespeed, Bath Audi, Bluebird Care and Mercedes-Benz, festival revellers came along to enjoy over seven hours of live music and entertainment.

The event included an array of stalls and attractions, a dog show, hot food, and the return of the Peasedown Diamond cider.

As part of the early planning process for next year’s festival, which will be the event’s 15th anniversary, the organisers are keen to gauge residents’ views and feedback on this year’s festival and how they thought it went.

Peasedown councillors Gavin Heathcote and Karen Walker, who manage and put on the event for the community, said:

“Thank you to everyone who came along to support this year’s Party in the Park festival. It’s been fantastic to see the event grow over the last 14 years.

From a humble village fete to a festival with 3,000 people – we couldn’t have done it without the support of the local community.

We’re always keen to receive people’s feedback though. If you attended the festival, we’d love to know what you think went well, and what could be improved for next year. Is there something you’d like to see more, or less of?

Please get in touch with your feedback.”

Main stage performances this year included: Original Barn Finds; Peasedown St John Primary School Choir; Kerosene Grace; Lille Rode; Trash Casino; Drew Neirin and the Star Shaped Pegs; Late Notice; Skimpi and the Trinity Band. 

The stage and entertainment line-up was organised and managed by Reaper Events and Radio Bath.

The Peasedown St John Community Civic Award, awarded to a villager each year who has gone ‘above and beyond’ to serve the community, was won by Jennifer Calignano who has spent the last 20 years keeping Peasedown clean with her daily clean ups and litter collections.
