Due to severe weather conditions at Ponderosa Park (Sheffield) over the past week and heavy rain during today’s Fire In The Park event with thunder storms and more heavy rain forecasted for the next 24 hours Bass In The Park 2019 has been cancelled.

Following full consultation with all of the relevant authorities including independent safety advisors, Sheffield council, emergency services and health and safety officials a final decision was made ‪at 10.30 this evening‬.

The safety of you, the fans and attendees, as well as performers and crew comes first, and the potential risk is too severe for the event to go ahead at this time.

Refund advice will be shared as soon as possible - please follow Bass In The Parks’ social media for official updates.

We sincerely regret the disappointment to fans, and apologise for any disruption caused to local businesses, performers and crew who were looking forward to Bass In The Park as much as we were.
