Flamingo Land has confirmed that Union J will now be headlining the Party in the Park concert this Saturday evening, 1st July, replacing Matt Terry who can no longer appear.
The Theme Park & Zoo has invited X Factor’s Union J back, following the success of their 2015 Party in the Park performance. The group has been performing as a three piece this year, consisting of members Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett, and Jaymi Hensley.
Union J will be joined by British chart topping, Platinum selling girl group Stooshe, consisting of Alex, Karis and Courtney. They have had four Top 20 hits, been nominated for a BRIT Award, closed the MOBO's and toured with Nick Minaj and J-Lo.
Union J and Stooshe will be supported by Bailey McConnell from Britain's Got Talent, who returns to Flamingo Land after the success of his Party in the Park performance last year.
“This will be our second Party in the Park this season. The first concert was a great success and we look forward to creating a sensational atmosphere again as these two popular acts take to the stage this Saturday” said Sarah Mills, Director of Marketing Flamingo Land Resort.
“Party in the Park is a great way to spend a summer’s evening and guests can buy a theme park ticket for the day which then gives them free access to the concert. Alternatively, they can arrive at 5:00pm for an hour in the theme park and zoo followed by the concert for just £10 each.” said Sarah. “There is a wide variety of food and drink outlets around Riverside One, so that guests can make it a social occasion.”
The concert starts at 6:00pm with a children’s Farewell Show. This will be followed by the Spice Pirates acrobatic troupe and a host of supporting acts before the headline acts take to the stage. The event concludes at approximately 10:00pm.
