Find out all you need to know about this weekend’s ultimate festival, Party in the Park! Monday, August 30th is set to be the biggest event of the season so far…
If you didn’t already know, we’ve planned one of the biggest blowouts of the year right here in Rhyl, Party in the Park, which will take place on Monday, August 30th, from 12pm until 6pm.
Forget Glastonbury, Lyons Robin Hood Showground (by the main entrance) is the place to be this weekend. You can expect everything from amazing guest acts & live entertainment from our rangers, to food & drink stalls, and even fire eaters and stilt walkers!
Here’s everything you need to know about Party in the Park, to avoid any confusion:
How do I get tickets?
This event is going to be huge! Therefore spaces are limited in order for us to maintain crowd control measures and ensure everyone’s safety at all times. This is why we will be operating on a ticketed system, where queuing for passes is required.
Simply turn up on Sunday morning to queue at 11.30 am, present either your wristbands or owners select pass as Lyons Robin Hood ID, and get ready for a full day of fun…
What if I have priority wristbands?
We know some of you have transferred your wristbands for the event held on a previous date to this Bank Holiday’s Party in the Park! These priority wristbands simply guarantee you entry – so just bring them along to the entrance from 12pm onwards, and you’ll be allowed straight in!
Is Party in the Park free?
This is a free event for any guests and owners, courtesy of Lyons Holiday Parks! However, due to limited capacity, we are operating a queuing system for tickets which will go live at 11.30 am on Sunday.
Please note: the entertainment, guest acts, Robin Hood Rangers are all free to watch, but drinks, food, and sweet treats can all be purchased via cash only. There are only two cash machines on-park, and we just know how many people will be turning up to this event…so come prepared! There are plenty of shops located close to the park, including a Spar within a mile in each direction out of the main entrance.
Who can go to this event?
This event is strictly for guests and owners at Lyons Robin Hood. Guest wristbands or owners select passes must be shown in order to obtain tickets, as members of the general public cannot attend Party in the Park.
What will be at Party in the Park?
*Please note this is an outdoor event, so dress appropriately! Toilets are located in Foresters and Sherwoods, so please be mindful of other holiday guests when walking through the main complex, and stay up to date with the latest Coronavirus government guidelines in Wales.
LIVE ACTS, MUSIC & ENTERTAINMENT
We have an incredible lineup of live acts and music to keep you partying all day long, such as Dua Live, The Olly Factor, The Tap Step Brothers, The Castaways, and a range of entertainment from our wonderful Robin Hood Rangers and Forest Friends! You can also expect fire eaters, and stilt walkers…because this is a festival after all!
FOOD & DRINK
Feeding those rumbling tummies won’t be a problem at Party in the Park. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of mouth-watering food stalls we have on offer. Expect juicy burgers from the BBQ, crispy chicken from the Chicken Shack, and a range of sweet treats to revitalise those energy levels throughout the day!
You can also enjoy a well-earned pint of Carlsberg or Heineken from the outdoor stalls and a whole range of refreshing beverages and soft drinks from our outdoor bar!
FUN & GAMES
We will be hosting a range of games and competitions throughout the day for the whole family to enjoy!
What if I can’t get there at 11.30am to queue?
As we’ve highlighted, there is limited capacity at this event, so if you are at first refused entry, we apologise! However, we will be operating a one-in, one-out system so it’s always worth popping back to see if there are spaces for you!
Can I bring my own alcohol?
Strictly no alcohol is permitted at the venue other than that purchased from the assigned beer tents and watering holes. Security will be present throughout the event, and will reserve the right to remove alcohol from your possession upon entry. This is non-negotiable, and the security team will be observing the event to ensure this protocol is adhered to. Any alcohol purchased off the premises will be confiscated and you may be asked to leave the event. We ask that you respect this rule, as well as our security team, who are there to keep you safe.
Will the rest of the park be open?
Absolutely! Party in the Park is an additional event that we’ve put on for you all to enjoy this summer. The rest of Lyons Robin Hood will be operating as normal on the day of Party in the Park, including the arcades, bars, soft play areas and swimming pool. This means that Foresters Show Bar will still be open from 5.30pm as usual for refreshments, with the full evening entertainment schedule set to start from 7.45pm. (Pick up an entertainment programme from reception so you don’t miss a beat!)
Monday’s daytime activities will be replaced with Party in the Park (which is shown on this week’s schedule) but please be assured the show bar will be open on Monday evening.
What do I need to bring?
Here’s a list of things we recommend you bring along if you’re attending Party in the Park this weekend:
- Your camera – don’t forget to tag us on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #partyinthepark, and look out for Caitlin and Beth, our park photographers, who will be offering photo opportunities with our very own Instagram frame!
- Festival wear (we mean everything from glitter to glowsticks)
- A raincoat
- Camping chair/ blankets
- NOT your own alcohol
More about COVID-19 restrictions and Party in the Park
Although the Welsh Government has announced a thorough easing of restrictions, we just wanted to highlight that guest, owner, and team safety is paramount at this event. This is why we’re asking you to be extra vigilant and respectful of others, and to please be sensible while you’re having a ball!
If you do need to go into the main complex (which includes the arcades, toilets, reception, or soft play area) please remember that face masks are required in non-hospitality public spaces in Wales. You don’t need face masks in Sherwoods Bar or Foresters Bar, but you do in every other indoor facility as per Welsh Government guidelines.
