Blantyre 80’s Party – Supersized!

There’s one Blantyre Summer event that people are absolutely buzzing about! A question we get asked every week, “Is the Blantyre 80’s Party in the Park coming back this year?!”

Well the answer is YES! Blantyre Community Committee have scheduled this popular outdoor and indoor event at Stonefield Public Park on the evening of Friday 14th June 2019.

The licensed, ticketed event was a huge success last year with almost everybody choosing to dress up. With stewards and community police present, there wasn’t one spot of trouble. The 2018 event was a ‘test’ limited to just 300 people attending….BUT this year the committee plan on supersizing the gig, to help pay for the whole gala weekend!

A spokesperson for the committee told us, “The Blantyre 80’s Party in the Park is returning! This year, it is hoped to sell tickets for up to 750 people, more than DOUBLING the guest list last year. It’s going to be AMAZING, especially if we get good weather again. With a bar, dance floor and the best DJ in Blantyre, we hope for another sell out!”

Tickets will again be priced affordably around a tenner or so and are expected to go on sale at the end of the month on a first come first served basis to 18’s and over. More info is available on their website at

Meantime, the Committee have asked for us to put up a poll to gauge interest, so please look out for that and take part, later this evening. Thanks.
