Party in the Park 2020← BACK

Saturday 4 July

Dance Woking would like to thank those of you who have already applied to take part in Party in the Park. Unfortunately with the rapid progress and impact of COVID-19 we are unable to proceed with our planned Summer activity.

 

Woking Borough Council has advised ‘in light of the Coronavirus and the emerging national picture. Underlying what we do is the safety and well-being of the community and the safety and well-being of our staff. Whilst we aspire to “business as usual” the reality is that it cannot be.

The “Celebrate Woking” activities have been terminated.  This means that the key activities which used Council resources or facilities will not be programmed or permitted during 2020. The only event that remains programmed is Remembrance Sunday on 8 November.’

As we adapt and adjust to the new reality the welfare of our artistes, team, audiences, community remains paramount. Over the coming weeks we will be getting in touch and updating our website and ways of working and look forward to working with on a new way of working and what we can offer.

If you have any queries please contact Ellie Dowling using email: office@dancewoking.com

Dance Woking & Party in the Parks

Dance Woking has been partnering with Woking Borough Council to present great dance at Party in the Park representing both the local community dance sector, which is extremely diverse, vibrant and strong as well as professional dance companies since this great free family day was introduced to Woking Park in 2012; moving from a very successful presentation of dance in Woking Town Centre’s Jubilee Square in previous years.

Each year we have filmed our activities at Woking Park featuring a round up of the highlights of the day; we wanted to share these short films with you;
