Since opening our outdoor arena, Riverside One, last year we have been delighted to bring you even more live entertainment than ever before. Thousands of visitors have already enjoyed our previous Parties in the Park, featuring star guests including Tinchy Stryder, Union J and Calum Scott.
Our third Party in the Park of the 2015 season takes this success to new heights. So, for anyone planning to join us on Saturday 25th July, don’t rush home after an amazing day exploring our Theme Park & Zoo. Simply get in a party mood instead and stay with us for an evening packed with spectacular live entertainment. The fun starts at 6pm with a Farewell Show hosted by Ryan Swain and starring our very own Mia & Mylo Meerkats to delight younger guests. Then, continuing the non-stop action, our breathtaking acrobats, the Bongo Warriors, take to the stage for a fearless fifteen-minute display of gravity defying strength, pinpoint precision and dexterity.
Then, starting with Little Mix tribute Dolly Mix, get ready to enjoy over two and a half hours of sensational live music. Next on stage is American Idol star Jeff Dingle performing as Bruno Mars, followed by the UK’s number one Take That tribute band Re-Take That.
At 8pm the evening steps up a gear with our X Factor extravaganza. Described as ‘Sweet But Street’, we’re sure that you’ll enjoy Croydon trio *Rough Copy*. Catapulted to fame in 2013 when they competed in the tenth series of X Factor, the band was mentored by Gary Barlow and dubbed the UK’s Boyz II Men by Louis Walsh. Rough Copy signed to Epic Records just over twelve months ago, releasing their debut single ‘Street Love’ shortly afterwards.
At 8:30pm we will then be bringing you the amazing headline act *Sam Bailey*. Winner of X Factor’s tenth series, Sam became a household name when her debut single Skyscraper topped the UK charts as 2013’s Christmas number one. This success saw her supporting Beyoncé on the UK leg of her tour. Sam’s debut album ‘The power of love’ went to number one in the UK album charts, resulting in a headline tour.
Admission to Party In The Park is free for visitors that have bought a day ticket and Holiday Village guests. For anyone who would just like to join us for this evening of live entertainment, Special Event Tickets are now available online, allowing entry from 5:00pm for only £10 for an hour of theme park and zoo and then the acts.
With its spectacular illuminated waterfall and all-weather stage, our Riverside One entertainment arena features a range of cafés, bars and restaurants. These will be staying open until late, allowing you to enjoy a whole host of delicious meals, drinks and snacks.
