Building on the successes of the events held in previous years Party in the Park is back for 2018.

Providing a free summer festival for the Deptford and New Cross Community we aim to deliver our best party yet!

The focus and theme of this year’s festival is the issue of housing.

Drawing upon the 'Tent City' event hosted at Party in the Park in 2016 we are currently inviting local groups to participate and contribute to a debate on the housing crisis that the community is facing.

We will of course provide a great day of live music and performance - A mix of pop, punk, reggae, folk and techno and much more.

With a special health and well being area, community arts and crafts stalls and family entertainment, this year’s Party in the Park is sure to be our best to date.

“In its day, Urban Festival was the alternative Glastonbury. This party is being organised by local people for local people and it’s also a celebration of local talent – the musicians and artists you’ll be reading about next year. And unlike so many festivals today it’s absolutely free.”

Kathy Dunbar, New Cross Learning, Chair

“We think the Party in the Park embodies the spirit of New Cross: this is a brilliant community and people have come together to volunteer their time and local organisations have sponsored the party..”
