Q in the park 2021
Victoria Park Stafford

|Location:||Victoria Park Stafford|
After two years we are BACK !
Q in the Park is a free community music and arts festival launched in 2011. The original idea was to provide entertainment and improve safety for festival goer’s from Stafford train station waiting for National Express transport to the V Festival at Weston Park. Over the years those disembarking from the trains slowed to a trickle, and the two day Q in the Park morphed into stand alone festival.
Q in the Park boasted 4,000 local people in attendance in 2018 over the two days. Renamed and in an alternative venue because of the refurbishment of Victoria Park, Party on the Pitch 2019 was held at Stafford Cricket Club and in 2020 we were Q in the Square in Stafford Market Square. Q has a fantastic family atmosphere with excellent live music, arts, showcasing local talent and plenty of stalls for your retail therapy.
