Pre-register now for Parklife blast
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 parklife.uk.com 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 manchester.gov.uk/nif or theburydirectory.co.uk/ parklifefund.
