WET and windy weather will not beat the 13th Party in the Park – that’s the message from organisers ahead of the popular event this weekend.
Top Queen tribute Mercury lead the line-up as the event returns to Delph and Dobcross Cricket Club on Saturday, September 22 from 3pm-10pm.
BBC GMR presenter Mike Sweeney will be compere for the occasion, which is organised by the Wake Up Delph Team, and there will be a host of talented bands and musicians on stage.
Despite the area being hit by heavy rain and wind over the last few days, Phil Beckwith, from the organising committee, confirmed the event is going ahead as planned.
“We’ve been here getting set up and getting very wet but we are just about ready,” he said.
“We’re in good spirits and are just getting on with it. I am sure everyone will have a great time as always so please come down and enjoy the day.”
He added that unless there are horrendous storms and gale-force winds, the event will not be cancelled.
Other entertainment on the day will include Lionel Richie tribute Malcolm Pitt, and Danny Lowry, who is arguably the number one Robbie Williams Tribute around.
Local band The Flatline will take to the stage for the first time while there is a second appearance for Neon, along with Ska Britannia.
And the event finish with Last Night of the Proms by Delph Band and a spectacular fireworks finale. There will also be hot food and a beer tent.
