Hunt for talent for local events

A shout has gone out for performers to bring entertainment into the town centre this summer.

Kettering Town Council is organising the Summer Saturday events on the last Saturday of the month from April to July.

Each event will have a different feel, with entertainment and activities planned according to that month's theme.

Now, the council is seeking local people to get involved with entertainment, workshops and more.

The first Saturday on 27 April will have a traditional theme, with maypole dancing and folk music. The event on 25 May will celebrate sports and games with the chance for people to join in and have a go.

In June on Saturday 29, the event will mark the anniversary of D-Day and Armed Forces day, with historical military items, vintage themed costumes and music, as well as a presence from local cadet groups.

And the last event on July 27 will celebrate the holidays and the arrival of Kettering By The Sea with a holiday theme.

Cllr Craig Skinner, Chair of the Markets and Events Committee, said: "We would love for local people to get involved in these events. They are for the people of Kettering to come and enjoy as well as a chance for people to join in and bring something along.

"It could be a chance for someone to show off their vintage vehicle, perform on the stage or bring a workshop along.

"The more people who get involved the merrier – we are really looking forward to bringing some fun into the Market Place this summer."
