Music in the Park
The Cultural & Economic Services Committee has taken the decision to cancel all Music in the Park concerts in June & July. At this point in time, the Music in the Park concerts for August and September will only take place if permitted, and following Government and Public Health England guidelines for the hospitality and the entertainments industries.
We’ve been working with some of our bands and are able to bring you videos of previous performances across Bedfordshire and beyond. We’ll be adding more performances each week as they are played out on our social media channels.
Listen to all of our bands’ performances, with more added each week, on our Facebook video page
- Week one – Bedford Brass performing Highland Cathedral Final
- Week two – Chiltern Hills Brass Band performing ‘Civitas’; a march written specifically for all the key and essential workers involved in the fight against Covid-19.
- Week three – Heath Band
There is no better way to spend a summer’s afternoon than enjoying live music in a well lovely park with a historic bandstand such as the one located in Parsons’s Close Recreation Ground.
Band concerts on a Sunday afternoon usually take place from June to September.
The Town Council has organised Sunday afternoon band concerts for many years which showcase brass and silver bands from around the region. The concerts include jazz and popular music offering a diverse and entertaining programme to suit all tastes.
Visitors had the opportunity to purchase refreshments throughout the concert from the kiosk located by the Splash ‘N’ Play park.
