Scouting For Girls are set to headline Normanby Hall’s Party in the Park this summer

2022 sees the Scouts hitting the road to celebrate their 15th anniversary with their legions of fans, including a date at the award-winning country park.

Looking ahead to the event, Scouting For Girls frontman Roy Stride, said:

“After the last couple of years, we just can’t wait to hit the road and put smiles back on people’s faces.

“Normanby Hall looks such an incredible venue, so it will be an extra-special night for us.

“We will be playing all our big hits and throw a few surprises into the mix – but one thing is for sure – we will be bringing the biggest and best party to the park. Bring your singing voices and we will see you down the front this summer.”

Joining Scouting for Girls on 23 July and making a welcome return to the park are local favourites Scrapyard Dogs, performing much loved pop, rock and indie anthems.

The Nineties Music Experience will also take to the stage with a set of 90s classics.

As well as fantastic music, visitors will also be able to enjoy a great range of street food and drink and enjoy live entertainment.

Cllr Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities – rural at North Lincolnshire Council, said:

“After the challenges of recent times, it is fantastic to see The Party in the Park returning bigger and better than ever this summer.

“Scouting For Girls are a brilliant live band and I can’t think of a better setting to enjoy some great music locally than the award-winning Normanby Hall Country Park.

“Normanby offers a fantastic day out for the whole family. As well as the fascinating exhibitions in the Hall, the Go Ape treetop adventure and brilliant golf course, their 2022 events programme has something for everyone to enjoy.

“From returning favourites like the Country Fayre to lots of exciting new events, including the No Limits Festival of Vision and Creativity, there’s so much to look forward to.”
