Meridian Park is a multi-purpose entertainment venue in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, United Kingdom.[1] It hosted its first event organised by Solid Entertainments of Grimsby featuring The Zutons and The Proclaimers in August 2009 as part of the Cleethorpes Rocks Music Festival.

Facilities[edit]

Meridian Park has few permanent structures to allow greater flexibility depending on event type. The permanent buildings include the control tower, featuring box office facility, first aid and lost children point as well as staff welfare facilities. There are also two permanent customer toilet blocks.

Events[edit]

The venue has seen a relatively sparse calendar of events since its opening. It hosted two concerts in 2009 and a laser display to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night in the same year.

2010's first event was the Lincolnshire Fine Food Festival, held over the weekend of 24 and 25 April.

It has been the finishing point for the 2008, 2009 & 2010 Cleethorpes Carnival Parade and also hosted the 2011 1940s Weekend.
