Party in the Park is a phenomenally popular event for Leeds so we are repeating the ballot system for tickets from last year as we feel it is the fairest and best way for everyone in the city wishing to attend to have an equal chance. The concert itself is a brilliant day out at Temple Newsam Park so we look forward to another amazing line-up this year and would advise anyone wanting to be there to make sure they register or they will miss out.”
