Annual one day free family festival of culture, Disco Loco in the Park, is expanding the area for stall traders for this years’ festival. Expressions of interest are being taken from anyone with something interesting and/or unusual to put forward. From food concessions to book sellers, from purveyors of festival wares to political activists, from Japanese curios, to palm readers, from massage givers to…. ANYONE! We would like this market to be original and surprising.

The Festival
Set in the beautiful surrounds of Springfield Park and with décor by Camille Walala, Disco Loco in the Park is the only family festival in the UK that steers clear of niche children’s activities, cleverly programming the very best, bold and exciting artists and companies to engage and stimulate families together. Now in its third year, Disco Loco in the Park presents a credible, leftfield and future-facing programme showcasing live music, theatre, cabaret and dance.
