Enjoy the great sunshine at Clarence Park Bandstand, and support some great young musicians at the same time!
2pm-5pm – we can’t wait to see you there!
On the bill are:
Additionally there’s Faceless Company’s Space-To-Create, full (loud) PA, and hopefully it’ll stay dry.
This event has been in-part supported by Wakefield District Council Creative Partners scheme.
There’s a Facebook event here if Facebook is your ‘thing’.
Finally we seem to have some warm weather, just in time to herald the return of our popular Brass Band Sundays at Clarence Park Bandstand.
Gratefully funded by Wakefield Council’s Creative Partners Scheme, we’ve got a programme of six brass bands over the rest of the year. From 2pm-4pm on the dates below these are free concerts and you’re welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the music.
The exception is that on Sunday 2nd June it’s 3pm-5pm, as we’re pleased to announce the return of the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. This was a splendid event last year – bring your bear and enjoy a programme of childrens music from Thurcroft Welfare Band.
The bands are:
Hope to see you there!
This weekend 22nd-24th is Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink & Rhubarb, and alongside the culinary celebrations we’re staging two free gigs!
On Friday 22nd from 4pm it’s Rhubarb Jam – three brilliant acoustic acts at Esquires Coffee House in Trinity Walk. It’s a child-friendly venue, serves fab coffee, and you can chill out to the sounds of McDylbot, Lucy Perry and William Booth.
Then on Saturday 23rd at The Bull & Fairhouse from 8pm we’ve Rhubarb Rocks! featuring Blaze playing classic rock covers from the past 4 decades. It’s a City-centre pub on a Saturday night so of course it’s an 18+ venue (sorry kids), however the Bull & Fairhouse is a Great Heck Brewery pub and serves some lovely ale hand-crafted by brewery overlord Denzil himself.
Both gigs are free in, and promise to be splendid. Do come!
