There’s something for everyone at this year’s Winchester Party in the Park and it promises to be the best yet with an exciting variety of activities, events and performances. It’s free to enter, though charges do apply to some of the activities.

We’re really grateful for the generous support of our sponsors and the volunteers supported by our officers at Winchester City Council. Volunteering at an event like this is a great way to get involved in the community.

The Council is working with the University of Winchester, A2Dominion and Osborne. For more details and information visit our Facebook page at
