The Bands in the Park 2017 series of events starts on 11 June with the City of Coventry Brass performing near to the Visitor Centre in the War Memorial Park at 2pm.
This is the first in a series of events running throughout the summer in many of the city’s beautiful parks and open spaces - and best of all they are FREE!
We have a great variety of music on offer for your enjoyment from marching bands, brass, jazz, rock n roll, swing and big band. All events take place from 2pm to 3.30pm and all are FREE. Sit and enjoy listening on a lazy summer’s afternoon or get up and have a dance with fellow music lovers.
This year also sees Nauls Mill Park joining in the fun with Chase Jazzmen performing there on the 13 August.
Karen Aspin, Events Project Manager at Coventry City Council, said, “Once again we are set to have some fantastic local talent performing in our lovely parks. There will be a great mix of music on most Sunday afternoons throughout the summer and I am sure the events will be as popular as always”.
“We just need a bit of sunshine so people can bring a picnic and enjoy the music and of course the great surroundings that our parks have to offer.”
There are 10 events in the series this year, starting in the War Memorial Park and continuing throughout the summer months on many Sundays until the final event which takes place in conjunction with the Heritage Open Days in Caludon Park on 10 September.
There is also a FREE special event taking place in the War Memorial Park on Wednesday 21 June at 2pm near to the Visitor Centre featuring music by The Swing Museum to celebrate International Music Day.
This year's events are from 2pm-3.30pm, and a full list of the performances can be found online at /bandsinparks.
