Bands bring music to city's parks

Published on Wednesday, May 30, 2018

MUSIC will fill the air in Leicester’s parks this summer as the city council's annual Bands in the Parks season gets under way.

The programme sees a live band performing in a different park each Sunday afternoon from June until September – and it’s free for everyone to enjoy.

On Sunday (3 June), the Charnwood Concert Brass Band will provide the entertainment in Abbey Park, with the Hathern Concert Brass Band appearing in Western Park the following Sunday (10 June).

Aylestone Hall Gardens welcomes the Ratby Co-Operative Band on Sunday 17 June, while the Ratby Junior Band will be in Braunstone Park’s walled garden on Sunday 24 June.

Two concerts will take place on Sunday 1 July, with the music of the Fleckney Village Silver Band filling Evington Park, and the Enderby Youth Band performing in Western Park.

All of the performances run from 3pm – 4pm, weather permitting.

The Bands in the Parks season continues until Sunday 23 September, with the full programme available at
