Saturday 1st July –  headlined by Matt Terry & Stooshe

Matt Terry will also be performing at Flamingo Land's Party in The Park. After being placed in the Boys category and mentored by Nicole Scherzinger, Matt eventually won the thirteenth UK series of The X Factor in 2016.

Following this success, Matt released his winner's single, ‘When Christmas Comes Around’, which peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart. He has now signed a deal with RCA Records.

Stooshe are a British chart-topping, Platinum selling UK girl group consisting of Alex, Karis and Courtney. These London lasses broke onto the UK music scene in 2012, with the release of their first single “Love Me”, featuring American rapper Travie McCoy and subsequently went on to have 4 top 20 hits. They have also closed the MOBO'S and toured with Nicki Minaj and J-Lo.



Saturday 29th July – headlined by Scouting for Girls

A succession of popular artists have thrilled our Party in the Park crowds, but perhaps the most iconic has been Scouting for Girls, who rocked Riverside One back in July 2016 and they will be hitting the stage once again this July.

As one of the most popular British Pop-Rockers in recent years, Scouting for Girls has racked up an impressive list of achievements since 2005. A string of top-twenty singles including 'Heartbeat', 'Elvis ain't dead' and 'She's so lovely', plus their number one hit 'This ain't a love song', have been supported by four Brit Awards nominations and an MTV Europe Music Award nomination for best new act.

Scouting for Girls has also enjoyed four successful albums, including their 2008 chart-topper, the self-titled Scouting for Girls. So, it is little wonder they are still incredibly popular across the UK and Europe.



New for 2017

The two-storey Hub entertainment complex opened at Easter and features the Upper Deck fish & chip restaurant with adjacent HMS Bouncy soft play area and takeaway counter. This leads onto an outdoor balcony where you can enjoy your refreshments whilst admiring the view of roller coasters and the Splosh water area.

The Fuel Stop cafe and Cool Fuel ices are located on the ground floor, along with an indoor seating area.  You can create your own best friend at Teddy Mountain, where after selecting your chosen bear, you can stuff it yourself, add a scent and sound and select its outfit.

The Hub can be accessed via Flamingo Land's monorail, which links directly to the animal collection.  Later this year this will be exchanged for an amazing new electric monorail where the carriages will benefit from air-conditioning and video screens.

The Selous Black Rhino Reserve has recently welcomed Baringo II, a new male who is part of an international breeding programme.  He has joined the 3 females already housed there.  Flamingo Land will also be welcoming 2 new male white rhinos at the beginning of May, replacing the 2 older males that have recently moved to other animal collections.

Flamingo Land's new rainbow lorikeet walk-in aviary has also now opened, where you can buy a pot of nectar to feed these brightly coloured birds.  Also, keep an eye out for Sophie, our 2017 female Rothschild giraffe calf.

Summer 2017

In summer, you will be able to experience the thrills of self-drive kart racing over a 300-metre circuit. Featuring a figure-of-eight format, you and your fellow competitors can enjoy side-by-side racing over three individual lanes. Although the majority of the circuit is outdoors, it also passes through our new Hub building.  Spectators can also watch the action from a dedicated elevated viewing area.

The Mansion House

The Mansion House & Tea Rooms was renovated a couple of years ago and allows guests to step back in time and enjoy traditional English refreshments, lovingly served in elegant surroundings. Evening dining is also available on selected dates for non-residents and resort guests and is also available to hire for parties and corporate events.


Flamingo Land have recently been granted a licence for civil wedding ceremonies in the Mansion House, which is also situated adjacent to the local village church. A wedding could also incorporate animal interaction, such as a lemur experience or being married on the wooden decking located within the zoo. Christenings and private parties are also welcome.
