More stars have been added to the bill for this year’s Party in the Park pop concert in Leeds.

Scouting For Girls and Loveable Rogues will both be playing the summer music bash, organisers at Leeds City Council and 96.3 Radio Aire revealed today.

They will be appearing alongside previously-announced names Blue, Stooshe and A*M*E.

Further acts are due to be confirmed shortly for the concert, which takes place in the grounds of Temple Newsam House.

Radio Aire breakfast presenter Rich Williams said: “Scouting For Girls are a band that know how to have fun on stage, they’ll have Temple Newsam singing along in no time.

“I’ve heard great things about Loveable Rogues live too.”

This year’s Party in the Park will be held on Sunday, July 28, and has the Yorkshire Evening Post as its media partner.

Budget issues mean the council has had to bring in ticket charges for the annual event for the first time.

General admission costs £10, although discounts of as much as £5 will be available to holders of leisure passes such as Breezecards and LEEDSCards. Tickets can be bought online from the web page.

Purchases can also be made in person or over the phone from the Carriageworks in Millennium Square (0113 224 3801) or the visitor centre at Leeds City Station (0113 242 5242).

Acts such as One Direction and Little Mix drew a crowd of 70,000 people to last year’s Party in the Park.

* This year’s Opera in the Park classical spectacular will take place at Temple Newsam on Saturday, July 27.

As previously reported by the YEP, acts appearing include TV presenter and singer Aled Jones, Classic Brit Award nominee Laura Wright and fast-rising operatic quartet Amore.

Ticket prices for Opera in the Park are the same as for Party in the Park.
