Pre-reg­is­ter now for Park­life blast

Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

PARK­LIFE fes­ti­val returns to Mid­dle­ton’s Heaton Park next sum­mer for its 10th an­niver­sary edi­tion.

The line-up for the 2019 event on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 has yet to be re­vealed, but with a sep­a­rate cur­tain­rais­ing show from Noel Gal­lagher’s High Fly­ing Birds and Doves on the Friday night al­ready con­firmed, it’s shap­ing up to be a pretty spe­cial week­end.

Pre-reg­is­tra­tion is now open for those who want to be the first to get their hands on tick­ets.

Fans who sign up at park­ will have early ac­cess to tick­ets through a pre-sale be­fore they go on gen­eral sale at the end of Jan­uary 2019.

The event raised more than £100,000 for lo­cal char­i­ta­ble causes, with £47,000 do­nated to The Joshua Wil­son Brain Tu­mour Char­ity, to help children and fam­i­lies liv­ing with brain tu­mours and post surgery dis­abil­i­ties.

A fur­ther £45,000 will be dis­trib­uted to com­mu­nity groups in the area who want to run projects within parks and green spa­ces in and around Heaton Park.

Raised from con­tri­bu­tions made at the fes­ti­val by guest list at­ten­dees, the Park­life 2018 Com­mu­nity Fund is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions now.

Half will go to groups and projects in the Higher Black­ley and Crump­sall wards of Manch­ester and ap­pli­ca­tions should be made by Friday, Fe­bru­ary 1, 2019. The other £22,500 cov­ers Bury’s Sed­g­ley, Holy­rood and St Mary’s wards, with a dead­line of Jan­uary 25. For more in­for­ma­tion visit manch­ or the­bury­di­rec­ park­life­fund.
