Party in the Park

Party in the Park

Party in the Park is the generic name given to popular music concerts organised by GCap Media in England and Wales, typically in various large parks during the summer. The concerts were all fundraisers for the Prince's Trust, and attracted audiences in the thousands.

The Party in the Park event was cancelled in 2005 due to the Live 8 concerts, when the Prince's Trust received £1.6 million in compensation from the Live 8 text message hotline.

It was cancelled again in 2006 when Capital who sponsored the event pulled out.
