GLITTER, face paint, and wellies – those are the items hundreds of holidaymakers will be packing in their suitcases before heading to North Wales this summer! Party in the Park, organised by leading tourism group Lyons Holiday Parks, is set to get the beachside booming in July, and again on August Bank Holiday weekend.
The exclusive event is the first of its kind at the group’s flagship park, Lyons Robin Hood in Prestatyn, and all hands are on deck to help make this one-off event a cracker. With the majority of the UK’s leading festivals on hold for the second year running due to Covid-19 restrictions, Party in the Park organisers are hopeful that this event will bring some much-needed cheer and ‘festival vibes’ to the popular tourist resort this summer.
Guests and owners will be treated to incredible circus acts, fire-eaters, stilt walkers, as well as plenty of performances from the Robin Hood Ranger’s in-house Ents Team. Guest acts such as Dua Lipa and will also be entertaining the crowds.
Martin Mugglestone, Ents Team manager for Lyons, said planning the all-singing, all-dancing festival is bringing some spark back into the park and his team. He said: “I speak for all of us when I say a good outdoor dance, drink, and sing-along is exactly what’s needed. We’ve got everything from live music, entertainment, bars, slush puppies, popcorn, and we really appreciate everyone just wants a good time this summer.”
Marketing manager Chloe Woodcock said the festival is a step in the right direction in terms of the easing of lockdown restrictions. She said: “The fact we can actually have a festival here in North Wales, albeit limited to guests and owners, is just amazing this year. Last summer, so many people were deprived of their favourite summer events, and if we can replicate just a fragment of Glastonbury or Creamfields this year, we’ll be very happy indeed.”
Party in the Park will go ahead on August 8th Sunday, and August 30st 2021 (bank holiday Monday)
