Applications Open – Encounters & Party In The Park 2018

Party in the Park & Encounters is back this summer and the team at Dance Woking cannot wait! Following on from the now much celebrated success of Party in the Park 2017, which saw over 15000 visitors, Woking Borough Council will be hosting the event.

Dance Woking will be curating the dance programme once more and is welcoming applications from different dance groups within the borough and surrounding areas to perform at Encounters, Party in the Park or both!

The theme will focus on the centenary of the end of World War 1 (1914-1918) as well as celebrating the achievements of leading suffragette Dame Ethel Smyth as we celebrate 100 years of women having the vote. Once again there will be a main stage featuring dance and music and the Encounters stage dedicated to all things dance from workshops, professional dance companies and community groups.

Encounters will take place on Saturday 30th June in Jubilee Square, Woking Town Centre. This event has grown in recent years and is a great way to introduce your community or professional group to new audiences!
Party in the Park will follow the week after on Saturday 7th July in Woking Park!
