FAQ

If you have a query that is not answered here please get in touch with us at info@creechpartyinthepark.com.

Afterdark: Can I camp overnight?

Camping is not something we anticipate happening in the future.   The campervans on site over the weekend belong to our volunteers/organisers.

Afterdark: Can we bring our own alcohol?

No. Our licence forbids any consumption of alcoholic drinks not purchased from the bar.

Also, Party in the Park costs over £10,000 to run, therefore we rely heavily on our sponsors, ticket sales, and most importantly bar sales. Without the profit the bar makes the event simply would not be able to happen. This is why we ask everyone to only buy their drinks from the bar and not bring their own on to site.  Our professional security team will be patrolling to enforce this rule.

We are happy to listen to suggestions about what the bar should stock and do our best to keep bar prices low while still making a profit.

Afterdark: Will there be fireworks?

No. As the field is extremely close to the M5, fireworks are not a good idea and will not be happening at any future event.

Afterdark: Will strobe lighting be used?

No. We have double checked with the DJ and bands and confirm that no strobe lights will be used.

  • Demos:  “have a go” ‘Bounce Fit demonstration, Tae Kwon Do display and taster sessions; and Country Dancing.

Will there be a dog show?

No. Dogs are not allowed at the Recreation Park and there is already a yearly dog show that happens at The Bell, so this is not something we want to add to the PIP event.
