The organisers of Party in the Park have held a number of past events to help fund the festival. Fund raisers help finance the costs of holding the annual festival and also acts as a platform for some great band and performers within the Deptford and New Cross community.
On 08 April, Party In the Park held a great funraiser at the Birds Nest. Those who came some great punk bands, and contributed generously for Party in the Park in 2016!

On March 22nd 2015 a Party in the Park fund raiser was held in the New Cross Inn. A great night out, we organised the event in order to raise funds for this years "Party in the Park 2015 (now cancelled!)". Show casing some great musical talent, the night kicked off with "Dirt Viv".
Rags Rudi, a seven strong outfit, played some great Ska and Maggie & Lucy Lyrical regaled the audience with acoustic songs. Les Zoings teamed up with the infamous Dr Bearnheart Gloss bringing a surreal slant to proceedings, before the Afro beat collective brought us back to earth.
A belated but neither the less brilliant turn by My Bad Sister brought proceedings to a close. Thanks to The Old Kent Roadies, and Steve from Softwax for DJing between sets, and of course to MC’s Patrick Lyons and Richard Lyons.

On august 31st 2014 a Party in the Park fund raiser SKA-BBQ was held in Brixton. A great event held at the Siren Sounds Studio raised over £300 for the festival held in 2014. A mouth watering array of food was provided and enjoyed by those who came along. After having feasted on fine food, revellers danced their socks off late into the night to some great music.
On sunday 27th July, Party In the Park held a fantastic funraiser at the New Cross Inn. Everyone had a brilliant time watching the top quality acts that performed.

“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..”R.McFarlane
