First Festival at Lyons Robin Hood A Huge Hit as Guests Party in the Park

Share it!

Our exclusive summer festival Party in the Park made the local paper this week! The next event on August Bank Holiday is set to be even bigger and better…

RHYL was alive with the sound of music and glee on Sunday as hundreds of holidaymakers gathered for the first festival of its kind.

Party in the Park, held at Lyons Robin Hood Holiday Park, in Rhyl Coast Road, on Saturday saw tourists and holiday homeowners celebrating as Wales lifted most of its remaining Coronavirus restrictions and moved to Level Zero.

Entertainers were back to doing what they do best! All pictures: Lyons Robin Hood in Rhyl Crowds gathered at our leading holiday park in North Wales, which is nearing its 100th year anniversary, to watch live entertainment, guest acts, and Robin Hood Ranger shows that were put on courtesy of the family-run business.

The free event included stilt walkers, food and drink, as well as tribute acts by Ed Sheeran, Britney Spears, and Dua Lipa, which was the Lyons’ group’s way of bringing some fun and excitement to the coast.

That festival feeling!

Martin Mugglestone, event organiser and entertainment manager at Lyons Holiday Parks, said his main intention was to “give people something to smile about” and to “bring a taste of Glastonbury to North Wales” in light of festivals being cancelled for a second year due to the pandemic.

He said: “Seeing the kids enjoying themselves outdoors all day, being able to run around again without a care in the world, was absolutely brilliant. So much work went into the organisation of Party in the Park, and it’s really paid off – despite the uncertainty around restrictions easing, and the weather of course.

“It’s also truly demonstrated the value of our brilliant Robin Hood Rangers, Jayd, Jenna, Hannah, Emma, Craig and Lewis, who are again doing what they were born to do – but were deprived of during lockdown with restrictions in entertainment and live events.

“The fact we were able to have hundreds of people coming together, dancing, singing, and enjoying the food and drink put on by the wonderful food and beverage team at Lyons, is just incredible. Party in the Park was a true celebration of people and connections, and we’re so glad so many people got to enjoy it for free while visiting Denbighshire.”

Group wide success

Joseph Lyons Mound, company director, said: “As a leading holiday park, who have over 100 years in helping bring holidaymaker’s dreams to life, we naturally have extremely high standards when it comes to guest experience, our types of entertainment, and what it is that will bring joy to families visiting North Wales.

“This event definitely had that extra bit of magic – and a huge thank you to the wonderful team at Lyons Robin Hood who went above and beyond to help make our first Party in the Park extra special.”

The next event will take place on Monday, August 30, at Lyons Robin Hood – watch this space for more info about the next all-singing, all-dancing event! Check out the full album from our official Party in the Park photographers on our Facebook page!
