Last year's Party in the Park

Adderbury’s annual Party in the Park festival is set to return on Saturday, providing a day of entertainment for all the family.

This year’s line-up features some of the finest bands from Oxfordshire’s local music scene, with a total of 14 acts playing across two stages throughout the day.

The varied music programme caters for all tastes and ages, featuring stage appearances from both young, rising talent and veteran musicians alike.

Headline music act, Blue Meanies, will get everybody grooving with some funky soul, blues, rock and ska vibes when they perform on the festival’s main stage at 10.20pm.

The band are renowned crowd pleasers who will have the audience grabbing their dancing shoes and strutting their stuff in front of the stage.

Earlier in the day, Midlands band Kate and the Mooncats are scheduled to perform some chilled jazz and swing classics from 12.30pm, while electro rock band Zurich will play a set at 3.30pm.

Then, at 7.25pm, Alphabet Backwards will capture a different mood with their indie electro pop sounds, followed by classic rock group Shooter at 8.55pm.

Alongside the acts performing on the main stage, a selection of acoustic musicians will also play individual sets in a neighbouring tent next to the basketball court.

As well as showcasing what the local music scene has to offer, Party in the Park promises to be packed full of creative craft stalls, fairground rides for thrill seekers, delicious food and a wide selection of beers.

With plenty to do and see, the atmosphere is guaranteed to be buzzing and lively at this small, family friendly summer festival.

Party in the Park takes place on Saturday, June 20. The gates open at midday on the Lucy Placket playing field, just off Round Close Road in Adderbury.

The event is entirely self funded so any donations on the day will be gratefully received to ensure this family festival can return for another year.
