Review of In the Park Festival
Had a really good evening, parking was convenient, had gold circle tick*ts so toilets were clean and bar wasn't too busy, acts were brilliant would come again if the right acts were there
Would you recommended: Yes
Fantastic well worth the money for the VIP tick*ts
Good day, but was barely half full. VIP tick*ts weren't as advertised and the prices of drinks were unnecessarily very expensive!!
Good venue lots of different food vans cash machines only let down is the price of drinks £5. can larger £5. for a spirit £2.50 for a bottle of water which I think at a venue on a hot day should be handed out free. a lot of security which was nice to see

Wasn't sure what to expect but finished the day on a huge high. Great range of bands and music, good atmosphere, lots of food and drink to choose from - a brilliant day out. Would definitely recommend and would love to see In The Park return next year!
Excellent festival, well organised , really well managed, tick*ts great value, overall highly recommend - the only criticism was cost of alcohol at £5 a tin - but other wise excellent !!!

Drinks & food too expensive... Nice set up but would of been nice to bring a picnic.
Music was good and a nice atmosphere
Great venue with a roof, so protection against the odd shower but not stiflingly hot, as some I've previously attended! Music was amazing. Loved the VIP area - well worth the extra money: great view in front of the stage, nice bar with no queues, decent loos and seating dotted around. Booze a bit pricey, but what you would expect.
Better than expected
Would not do VIP over priced for what you got and transport links were poor .
Great music, lovely atmosphere, food ok, drinks totally overpriced.
Lovely weather, well organised. No Real ale. Saw several young people being treated by paramedics for too much booze. Would always support a local venue. Local bands were great
Good festival. Ludicrous prices for drinks just no need. If they were cheaper more people would go.
Plus: friendly staff, clean loos, music consistently good and kept schedule, water £1 from curry stall, hay bales, little queuing
Minus: VIP front area divided audience when atmospherics were needed, Hoosiers on too early for audience response, poor beer choice, water £2.50 from main bar,
I enjoyed the bands very much. In hindsight Neville Staple should have played after Paul Young, as he had more songs to dance to, and had more in common with From The Jam's audience, but that is not to say that Paul Young was not good, he was. The biggest problem was the price of the drinks, £ 5.00 for a can of Red Stripe, or a can or Carlsberg, is ridiculous. The entrance tick*t price was reasonable, it is the cost of the drinks that was well over the top.
The only let down for this event was the prices from the bar being charged £5 for a can of beer from quite clearly was a multi pack brought in supermark*ts was criminal.
I enjoyed the event, there was space and queues were not long. The line up should have been a different order; the Neville Staples Band was great, Paul Young should have been before him in my opinion. From the Jam did a fantastic set!
The whole experience was very good, however one of the earlier acts southchurch I believe, the need for swearing No, pointless, felt the girl singer was great, but he let the whole thing down, minor I know but just pointless, no other bands did this. The event I would recommend to anyone, the VIP experience was very good.
GReat day had by all!
