Park will be filled with the sound of summer music

Bands in the Park returns to Kettering this year with a programme of summer entertainment.

The popular events will see a live band performing on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer – and they are free for everyone to enjoy.

Music will be hosted at the Rockingham Road Pleasure Park bandstand every Sunday afternoon from 25 June to 27 August inclusive.

Park users can enjoy a wide range of music, with the traditional brass and silver bands as well as funk, jazz, saxophones and more, from 2pm each Sunday.

As well as having bands in the pleasure park, Kettering Town Council is spreading the music out to the town centre for two Bands in the Town events at the start and end of the season.

These performances will be in the Market Place on Saturdays 10 June and 2 September from 11am.

Cllr Craig Skinner, Chairman of the Markets and Events Committee, said: "We know people love seeing the bandstand brought to life with music in the summer and so we are extending the programme to stretch over 10 weeks. We are still having the traditional brass and silver bands that everyone loves but this year we are adding in some other bands this year as well to expand what we are offering.

"We also wanted to bring the music to the town centre, so we are holding two events in the Market Place this year at the start and the end of the season. All the events are free, so people can just turn up and enjoy the music this summer."
