ABOUT Car Park Party

Car Park Party is bringing you a safe, socially distanced, American drive-in experience! Enjoy Car Park Comedy, Car Park Karaoke and Car Park Theatre, with more entertainment still to be announced.

This means that even in these unusual times you can still laugh out loud at a stand-up gig, belt out karaoke tracks or get swept up in a theatrical production with your family and friends - all from the comfort of your own car.

Held at numerous sites across the UK this summer, Car Park Party is providing some much-needed escapism for live entertainment lovers - while keeping you cocooned in the security of your vehicle the whole time.
