Music in the Park

Hotham Park Heritage Trust (HPHT), currently a registered charity, is in the process of being closed with the intention of becoming a charitable organisation to be known as Friends of Hotham Park (FoHP).

All events listed on this website have always been organised and run entirely by a small group of unpaid Trustees, Members and Volunteers of Hotham Park Heritage Trust. In the Autumn of 2019 the decision was made to close the Trust because of a lack of people willing to volunteer their time.

The new charitable group, Friends of Hotham Park, hope to continue the legacy of HPHT by organising various activities in the future but they need your help. For more information please email or click here.

The following is one of the events organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2019.

Herewith the history of these events and details of performances that have been enjoyed in previous years.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust entered new territory in 2016 by offering even more FREE entertainment during the summer in Hotham Park.

In 2018 we presented musical entertainment on 4 occasions, as shown on the poster on the right.

In 2017 we hosted 3 events featuring Coustics Ukulele Band, The Bognor Regis Concert Band and Beaten Tracks Instrumental Band. All were well attended and went down well with the public who were able to relax and enjoy the entertainment.

In 2016 we were entertained by Elliott Herrington (pianist and songwriter with his own spin on well known songs), Geoff Valenti (solo trumpet player) and Tom Janes (classical guitarist) so there have been a wide range of musical styles to enjoy.

Hotham Park Heritage Trust is a Registered Charity and all work was undertaken by a group of unpaid Volunteers. The funds raised were spent on improving the amenities in Hotham Park for the benefit of the public.

Here is a video of Beaten Tracks Instrumental Band in action.
