This July the Party in the Park will once again bring Woking to life with a mixture of music and performances suitable for the whole family.
The musical extravaganza is due to take place on Saturday, July 8 in Woking Park. The best bit? The organisers have worked hard to ensure the festival remains a FREE community event.
This year, the party’s theme will be ‘Rockin’ All Over the Park’ in tribute to the town’s late Rick Parfitt from Status Quo. The party will also be celebrating the work of Woking’s popular Brit band, The Jam – it’s been 40 years since the release of their first album!
Fun for the whole family
Unlike many festivals, the Party in the Park is crowd-pleasing event aimed at the whole family. As one of Surrey’s most anticipated festivals, grandparents and grandchildren alike will be able to get into the spirit of the swinging 60s and the flower-power 70s.
The event will offer up all the usual delights – live music and dance performances, tempting street food, drama and comedy, fun workshops, unique trading stalls and plenty of cultural and sporty activities from community groups. They don’t call it the ‘Woodstock of Woking’ for nothing!
Children are definitely not an afterthought at this party. They’ll be able to learn some circus skills, watch a Punch and Judy show, take part in a giant marble run, get stuck into a variety of arts & crafts, join an archaeological dig, and toddlers can even shake their Rock ‘n’ Roll thing with the team from Monkey Music. There’s a whole load of other surprises to discover.
Big screen delights
Tennis and cycling fans won’t have to miss out either as Wimbledon and Tour de France coverage will both be broadcast throughout the day on the New Victoria Theatre big screen. In the evening, visitors are invited to enjoy an open air cinema experience and watch the hit family film School of Rock staring Jack Black.
