Live music to return to Abington Park this spring and summer
Abington Park is set to come alive with activity this spring and summer thanks to the return of the popular Bands in the Park concerts and a full calendar of events at Abington Park Museum.
Organised each year by Northampton Borough Council, the Bands in the Park weekly performances return from Sunday 7 April, with Moulton 77 Brass Band first up on Abington Park’s iconic band stand.
Other bands taking part in the concerts include Marsh Gibbon Silver Band on 5 May, Fynnius Fogg on 16 June, Northampton Male Voice Choir on 21 July, and Towcester Studio Band on 18 August. Closing the season in style will be Rockin Roadrunner on 15 September.
In addition to the live music, a range of events, workshops and talks will be taking place at Abington Park Museum, allowing families to make the most of their days out at the park.
Highlights from the programme include the Spring Food Fair on 13 April, the Art in the Park exhibition between 11 May and 16 June, performances of the Masque Theatre’s Love’s Labours Lost between 25 July and 3 August, Dog Sculpture Workshop on 30 July, and Northampton’s Heritage Fair on 14 September.
Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: “We look forward to welcoming the popular Bands in the Park concerts back to the beautiful surroundings of Abington Park this spring and summer.
“We hope that visitors will come along each week to enjoy the varied programme of performances from local bands, as well as the many events and activities that Abington Park Museum hosts each year”.
