The Bands in the Park events return to many of Coventry's beautiful parks this summer with ten different bands performing on Sunday afternoons.
The first event takes place in the War Memorial Park this Sunday 3 June and has the City of Coventry Corp of Drums performing near to the Aviary.
All these very popular events take place between 2pm and 3.30pm and are FREE to attend.
As always, there is a great variety of music on offer for your entertainment from marching, steel, brass and big bands, jazz, blues, rock n roll, acoustic pop/rock and swing. Chairs are available for free at all events so sit down and enjoy listening on a lazy summer’s afternoon or get up and have a dance with fellow music lovers.
Karen Aspin, Coventry City Council events project manager said, “Bands in the Park are a great, family, Sunday afternoon treat. It's lovely to get out in a local park and enjoy the great music. Once again, we have a great variety of local talent performing in the parks. I am sure these FREE events will be as popular as always”.
“Get out and about, bring a picnic and enjoy the music. Finish the afternoon off with a nice, healthy walk and enjoy the great surroundings that our parks have to offer.”
Parks taking part include the War Memorial Park, Longford Park, Allesley Park, Nauls Mill Park, Stoke Green Park, Spencer Park, Holbrooks Park and Caludon Castle Park.
The final event takes place takes place with the Dayspring Steel Band playing in Caludon Castle Park on the 9 September. This coincides with Heritage Open Days taking place across the city and nationally and is sure to be a great finale to the series.
While visiting the parks for these events why not improve your health and get a bit of exercise by using the recently installed marker posts to see how far you walk around the parks.
Just another great reason to get out and about in Coventry's lovely parks over the summer.
Please note: Times for this year’s events are 2pm to 3.30pm.
