The fourth Burgess Hill Party in the Park took place on Saturday June 11 and proved to be more popular than ever as an enormous crowd of music lovers made their way to St Johns Park to enjoy an afternoon of entertainment and family fun.
The music started at 12 noon and was provided by eight bands local to the area - The Burgess Hill Rumblers, Live Control, The Taken, Sent Her Mental, Louder Than 10, Cool Britannia, Rubber Soul and Iron Tyger who all played for free to help raise funds for this year’s charity, the 7th Burgess Hill Scouts group.
We were also very lucky to secure two fly-bys by The Blades aerobatic team and also the Red Arrows. Both received a huge cheer from the crowds as they streamed across the sky.
As the afternoon wore on and more people began to arrive, the heavens opened and we had to quickly cover the stage area with an emergency gazebo - the first time we have had to deploy such a tactic ever! But this didn’t put an end to the party. St Johns Park continued to rock out in the refreshing summer rain right through until the party came to a close at 8pm.
Even with the rain, we believe that this was probably the best Party in the Park so far and we hope to see everyone again next summer.
This year’s event was sponsored by PDP services, Holt security, TLC Electrical and Hunters Estate Agents.
