Enjoy two more weekends of Bandstand music as summer programme draws to a close

Tuesday, 14th August 2018

A UNIQUE classic blues band and an acoustic guitar player are rounding off a musical summer of entertainment from the Castle Grounds Bandstand during the final two weekends in August.

Audiences can enjoy relaxing in the park to the sounds of 58 Blues Band on Saturday August 18, followed by Bryan Brindley & Friends on Saturday August 25, who will bring this year’s programme of Summer Bandstand Concerts to a close.

58 Blues Band play their versions of classic blues tracks in their own spontaneous way. Inspired by artists from both past and present, they are one of the most exciting and gritty blues bands around.

Bryan Brindley is inspired by bands such as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Crowded House and Oasis and performs acoustic versions of popular songs from across the decades.

Organised by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team, the annual bandstand concerts tradition has seen the historic stage coming to life throughout the season with music and entertainment for all tastes.

So far, the programme has been popular with both young and old, showcasing crowd-pleasing bands and vocalists. Don’t miss out on these two last acts for August.

Sponsored by Ankerside Shopping Centre, all the concerts are free of charge, so bring your picnic baskets and blankets down to Tamworth Castle Grounds for an afternoon of music. Performances take place at intervals between 1pm and 4pm (subject to weather conditions).

Cllr John Chesworth, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Culture and Operational Services, said: “58 Blues Band and Bryan Brindley & Friends return for another memorable selection of performances.

“It’s great to see bandstand concerts continuing to go from strength to strength. Everyone is invited to enjoy a lovely afternoon of entertainment in the stunning Castle Grounds. Don’t miss the last two bandstand performances for this summer.”

The bandstand concerts are part of a great calendar of outdoor events organised by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team. For the full 2018 line-up please visit: http://www.tamworthartsandevents.co.uk/outdoor-events.
