The June Party In The Park, on Saturday June 25, will star Kevin Simm, winner of The Voice 2016.

On Saturday, Ben Haenow, winner of the 2014 X Factor, took to the outdoor stage at Riverside One arena at Flamingo Land for the May Party in the Park.

Kevin Simm shocked the UK this year when he appeared on the BBC One singing competition The Voice - a familiar face for many as he was formerly a member of Liberty X. The band enjoyed great success from 2001-2005 racking up seven top 10 hits and the number one single, Just a Little. Kevin's incredible vocals were showcased in the blind audition process where his rendition of Sia's Chandelier not only had all four judges turning but the audition video has since received over four million views on YouTube.

Kevin was originally part of Team Paloma but was subsequently stolen by Ricky Wilson after the battle rounds. As a part of team Ricky, Kevin went from strength to strength and became the winner of The Voice 2016. Following his win Kevin released his winner's single All You Good Friends and is currently gearing up for what looks to be an exciting year ahead.

Kevin will be supported by 4th Impact. They caused a stir when they hit television screens across the nation on ITV1's The X Factor in 2015. The Filipino sisters who grew up in Manila received a standing ovation from the judges for their first audition. They eventually went on to finish in fifth place and were a featured act on the X Factor tour.

Admission to Party In The Park is free for visitors attending during the day, Season Pass holders and Holiday Village guests. For anyone who would just like to visit for one hour of theme park and zoo followed by an evening of live entertainment, Special Event Tickets are now available online, allowing entry from 5pm for £10.

The Riverside One entertainment arena features a range of bars and restaurants.
