Summer - Annually
Although Party In The Park (PIP) is held in Pitshanger Park normally at the end of June each year, 2018's PIP will be held on Sunday 1st July (thanks to the World Cup games on 24th June).
PIP is the PCA's main Summer community event which year on year becomes more popular and a great day out. It is also our main fund raiser that we can then divert to other local organisations and causes. This event is run entirely by voluntary resources. (if you would like to help with the event, please email volunteer [at] pitshanger [dot] org [dot] uk)
This event has lots of offer for a very modest entry of £3 per adult, free for kids. We start the day at 1pm with a full programme on the Open Air Stage enjoying music and dance acts by local schools and other groups and continue to 9pm with live music in the beer tent.
Hunger and thirst are kept at bay by the Gastrodome, where local restauranteurs vie for your custom offering a range of BBQ, Hog Roast, Pimms, Strawberries & Cream and Asian and many other cuisines. Visit the Beer Tent whilst enjoying the live music which continues throughout the evening.
Browse in the Village Fayre with over 50 stalls offering everything from arts, crafts, plants, cakes, home made goods and many other activities. A new addition to the event this year is the Sports Village giving a greater focus to the many sporting activities and sporting venues open to the local community.
Other regular attractions include a magnificent Carousel and the Arena which plays host to a variety of fun activities including a dog show. Throughout the day, junior football teams battle it out on pitches adjacent to the Party In The Park showground. Let the kids loose on the climbing wall and numerous other attractions around the site.
Bring a picnic, your friends and your family and enjoy hours of entertainment on hopefully a sunny June afternoon. And finally, buy raffle tickets and have a chance of the £500 cash prize!
