After a bit of a break, the Amber Project's Party In The Park is back this year, raising money for the Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Hospital, with a line up of top bands playing all day, and with loads of family entertainment.
There's a funfair, a 5-a-side footy tournament, face painting, games with Groundwork, lots of graffiti artists doing their stuff and loads of stalls.
The Salford Star will be having its usual stall too and we're getting some new t-shirts specially printed which will be on sale to raise money for the mag.
Meanwhile, on stage there's a whole line up of top acts, from the pop sounds of Firouza, James Bennett, Louise Bowyer and Dean Gray, to the indie rock of Hanky Park and Jealous, to the rap of Misfit Music, Coldside Generals, Skittles and TNC. The Silky DJs, as ever, provide the vibes.
The money raised on the day is going towards the Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Hopital in Liverpool, a cause backed by local residents, Janieve Petruzis and David Oldroyd…
"I stayed at the House when my son, Scott, was poorly and met David there because his son, Thomas, was also in Alder Hey" says Janieve "We noticed that the people who had donated the rooms were from Liverpool and we owe them big time. So it will make me and David feel better knowing that that we've given something back to those who helped us.
I'm dead excited about Party In The Park" she adds "And I feel really confident that everyone will pull together and help us raise the money."
Party In The Park is going to be one huge community celebration. Don't miss!!!
