Stranraer Inshore Lifeboat

 Agnew Park, Stranraer

In the last 4 years our wee festival has got better and better, putting our lifeboat and Stranraer on the map   Our festival has been described as Boutique…..  none commercial, intimate, friendly, fun, no large security presence over policing it. A place for like minded people to get along and get down to the sounds and enjoy themselves in a safe, family friendly environment, was one avid festival goer’s interpretation.

What is the Park Fest?  A music festival, a large marquee which is ticketed, a licensed bar and live music all day!!  Nowhere else could you get so much great live music for so little a cost, in fact if you buy your ticket before hand it is less than £2 per band!!  In Agnew Park itself, there are many other attractions going on, craft stalls, fun fair, face painting, tattoos,, bottle stalls, bouncy castle,  pony rides, The Marine Lake with its pirate ship and boats, pedal carts, Lochryan Pipe Band, Cheerleaders. lots lots more and of course Stormy Stan will be wandering around joining in the fun, in fact it is a great day out for any family, with the beautiful setting of Agnew Park itself on the shores of Loch Ryan and its views, what more could you ask for?  Have a read of some of the comments received after previous park fest’s below.

Why?  well next to Agnew Park is the Stranraer Inshore Lifeboat Station, the RNLI relies totally on volunteers, fundraising and donations from the public to provide this vital life saving service.   Click the flag to find out more.
