Adderbury Party in the Park 17th June 2017

Adderbury’s very own community music festival is a one day event that has managed to keep going since 2002.

Our music festival takes place in the heart of the village community on Lucy Plackett Playing Field in Adderbury and attracts around 1500 people each year.

The event showcases an eclectic mix of music; mainly local bands and artistes, featuring a main stage (set up on a truck) and an acoustic tent.Party in the Park is run by a committee of professional, hard-working and dedicated volunteers who set up the event essentially to forge a strong community spirit, promote local musicians, and to give local people an enjoyable day out.

There is no admission fee, it’s by donation only, and is completely self-funding. Lucy Plackett Playing Field is a village amenity for all hence we are not able to fence it off for the event or charge an entrance fee.
The event relies completely on the generosity of all who donate to our bucket collections throughout the day, fees from stallholders, fund- raising events throughout the year and donations from businesses and other local groups.
