As we reported back in February, Woking Borough Council have announced the return of their 'Party In The Park' event which is to be held at Woking Park on Saturday 8th July 2017. This year is being re-branded 'Rockin' All Over The Park' as a tribute to one of the town's most famous sons, Status Quo legend Rick Parfitt, who died on 24th December 2016.

The event promises an exciting programme, packed with music, dance, art and entertainment that's guaranteed to take you back in time to the delights of the swinging sixties and psychedelic seventies.

The event will also honour another famous son of the town, Paul Weller of The Jam, and is expected to draw around 20,000 people.

A number of acts are scheduled to play including The Jam'd and King Pleasure And The Biscuit Boys but the real coup for the event is the announcement that original Status Quo drummer John Coghlan will headline with his band, John Coghlan's Quo.

In homage to his former fellow bandmate, the group will take partygoers back in time, recreating an authentic 70s Quo Sound and playing classics including 'Backwater', 'Roll Over Lay Down', 'Rain', 'Caroline', 'A Year' and, of course, the ubiquitous 'Rockin' All Over The World'.

The Woking event is just one of the numerous shows being undertaken by the band who are also playing a host of dates across the UK and Europe including Graz, Vriezenveen, Limburg, Verviers, Kidlington, Gorleston, Abingdon, Southampton, Leamington Spa, Stoke on Trent, Mansfield and London.

The band are also on the bill for Rock Against Cancer – Concert At The Kings in All Cannings on Saturday 20th May and the second international Status Quo Convention which is being held at Butlins, Minehead on Sunday 15th October.
