Party In The Park 2019
The event has now happened! The Poynton Party in the Park 2019 show was amazing.
NEWS – Ticket Scanning: Just to let you know that we have moved away from manually posting out individual wristband purchases. For 2019 we set up a ‘Buy now!‘ secure link to our on-line, low cost, ticket company. They will send you a scan code for each ticket purchased.
All you do is bring a printed copy of the ticket with ‘scan code’ image to the stewards at the entrance to the park. A tablet or mobile phone image would also be possible if the image is clear. We will scan it and then give you a wristband to acknowledge your entry, and allow you to also re-enter later.
NEWS – Park Entry & Exit: Another change we introduced for safety reasons was to separate vehicle entry and exit gates. This year in 2019 you drive in at the first vehicle gate on South Park Drive (SK12 1BN), and you exit by the vehicle gate at the top of South Park Drive (See the purple arrows on the layout plan).
There is free parking as in previous years within the park.
Pedestrians only enter by a separate gate at the bottom of South Park Drive near to the lake (see the blue arrows on the layout plan)
NEWS – On-line purchased Tickets will have single use scan codes which means after a valid scan on entry, you will receive the wristband, which must be worn during the event. Alternatively wristbands may be purchased by cash or payment card, at MATES DIY, several weeks before the event right up to the actual day. Please ensure that you bring the scan codes or wristband to enter the event. Sorry – all early purchase reductions are now finished.
NEWS – Vendors: To supplement your own party picnic, we had a number of food and drink vendors planned, including a Drinks Bar, The Coffee Pod, Whippy Ice Cream, Spud Van, Wildfire Pizzas, NW Events Fish & Chips, Sugar Donuts. We also had the popular Face Painting tent from last year. We really appreciated the donations made by all these traders.
ENTERTAINERS: This year’s charity musical extravaganza took place on Saturday 15th June 2019 with 6+ hours of sensational live music for all tastes. We started off at 4pm with a showcase of young talent from Poynton, whilst you enjoy your food and drink hampers.
This was followed by Poynton’s award winning Vernon Brass Band, who have been with us every year since the event started in 2004.
Next we had Paul Grant Reason performing an amazing tribute to George Michael. Back again by popular demand were Monkey Harris who we knew would have everybody on their feet dancing. An hour later Paul Grant Reason transformed and lost his bristles in order to perform an incredible award winning tribute act to Robbie Williams.
George Michael Tribute act by Paul Grant Reason. His show is always a real must for all George Michael fans as he brings you the passion and energy of George in the 80s and beyond, that made him such a loved, global megastar.

Robbie Williams Tribute act by Paul Grant Reason was an amazing act. You were in for a real treat! He has won the National Tribute award three times with the voice, look, mannerisms and stage presence of Robbie to absolute perfection. Just take a look at the video clip and see for yourselves.

ABBA Tribute 90 minute act by Waterloo was just like watching the real ABBA back in the day when they were right at the top. Waterloo are deemed to be the very best of ABBA tributes. They are the most authentic ABBA show that you are ever likely to hear. They were top of the bill at the 2019 Party in the Park event brought to you by the hard working Poynton Rotary club.

Party In The Park is a ‘not for profit event’ so the good news is that all surplus/profits from the event go to charities and worthy community causes supported by Poynton and District Rotary Club.
