Rock and roll classics, some 1940s toe-tappers and tribute bands belting out the top hits of Take That and Abba will all be part of this year’s Summer Sounds concert in the park.
Erewash Borough Council’s annual concert at Victoria Park, Ilkeston is always a big hit with families from across the borough as they pack into the park to sing along and dance to all the top tunes.
This year’s event is on Sunday 23 July between 3pm and 7pm and will also offer lots of family entertainment, including stilt walkers, circus skills workshops – with admission, activities and the live concert all free.
Local band Rocks n Frocks will provide the 50s and 60s hits and singer Johnny Victory will turn on the nostalgia 40s style, while the Abba and Take That tributes will have everyone singing along to the biggest chart hits.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“Put the date in your diary, pack a picnic, take along a chair – and blanket and umbrella just in case – and have a great afternoon of fun and all the top music hits. Could it be magic? You bet, it will be the Greatest Day!”
Summer Sounds-goers can take their own food for a picnic in the Green Flag park and there will also be food and refreshment outlets at the event.
