AMP’s major fund-raiser Party in the park is set in the community park, in the heart of Bishop’s Castle, Party In The Park is a relaxed music festival, running from 12 noon until 10.30pm, Music starts at 12.30 pm with everyone dancing or sitting on the grass (some bring their deckchairs and picnics!) listening to a selection of established and local bands.
It has become an established event in the local calendar. Last year we saw more than 1500 people through the gates, coming from a 50-60 mile radius – from Newtown, Welshpool, Shrewsbury, Hereford, Bishops Castle, Craven Arms, Ludlow, Clun and beyond. Bands from these areas also bring their fans for support. It is not your ‘traditional’ festival crowd, more a community family event for people of all ages.

Another highly rated film for Broseley and beyond
War in Georgia (not the American one), where local Apkhazians are fighting to break free from Georgia. An Estonian village between the mountains has become empty since almost everyone has returned to their respective homelands.
Only two men stayed: Ivo and Margus. But Margus will leave as soon as he has harvested his crops of tangerines.
In a bloody conflict in the miniature village, wounded men are left behind, and Ivo is forced to take them in. But they are from opposite sides of the war. How do they all manage to handle it?
Admission £5.50 – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – cabaret layout
Although largely UK produced, it’s regarded as “world cinema” because of its setting and non-English speakers.
The spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family.
Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
Cabaret layout – 4.5 metre screen – excellent bar – full of friendliness
