Message from Friends of Crystal Palace Park:
Bromley Council has had an application for a 3 day festival on the top site of the park this summer, the details are brief, but they would like our opinion.

  - The Maximum numbers and licence applied for would be up to 5000 people.
  - The standard event requirements for car parking , stewards , first aid etc would be required.
  - The area proposed within the park would be the top terraces rather than the concert bowl area. 

In brief then, and see attached for info about the Friday night drive-in suggestion:

  - Friday night Drive in movie in the evening opening 6:00 - 7:00 till 10:00 TBC

  - Saturday all day music festival and fun:  something like 1:00 till 10:00 or ten thirty. Bands like : Blockheads, Wilko Johnson, Dodgy, local bands like the Duallers possibly some tribute acts Police, Slade

  - Sunday Picnic PROMS possibly vocal choir or brass band on first as support, then the Kent Sinfonia play the most popular PROMS tunes such as 1812 overture and with Fireworks finale

  - Possibly a funfair included with kids rides as well as some arts and crafts for sale and some alternative comedy in the mix

  - A delicious variety of food and drinks also on sale : Wines, Beers, cask ales, 

Demographic couples 30’s 40’s family friendly


If you would like to feedback your comments on this proposal then please email friendsofcpp@gmail.com who are collating feedback, or contact Bromley council directly, or just post here and we will direct Bromley to the thread.


We'll post the diagramatic info re: the drive-in shortly.


If this event is given agreement to go ahead, the organisers will require a licence which will be consulted upon more widely and formally. So you will have another opportunity to make your views known when the full detail is available.

There is now a formal consultation period on the premises licence application for:


Crystal Palace Park Garden Party which will take place over 3 days, starting Friday 16th August 2013 and finishing on Sunday 18th August 2013.


All below is an extract from Bromley council's notification letter:


A general description of the event which has been taken from the application form is as follows:
