This Saturday 13th July: Music at the bandstand – Our Big Gig!

Join in on Saturday 13 July, between 1 and 4pm at Watford Bandstand, and in Cassiobury Park, opposite Café Cha Cha Cha, where there’ll be two simultaneous Big Gigs!

Our Big Gig is a community music celebration which takes place across the UK. This annual event aims to bring communities together to celebrate their local musical talents and get more people involved in music making. As you may be aware; in Watford, we are bidding for Heritage Lottery Fund money to restore Cassiobury Park. One of the things we will do, if we are successful, will be to move the bandstand back to the park. So, we are joining Our Big Gig and holding two simultaneous musical extravanganzas – one at the bandstand, currently located in the town centre, and one in the bandstand’s possible new home – in Cassiobury Park, opposite Cafe Cha Cha Cha. Do come and join us to hear local musicians playing a real eclectic mix of world music – including acoustic folk, a brass band, African drums, a steel drum duo and Charleston dancing. In between performances we are setting up an audio visual for people to see and a chance to speak to our staff about the Heritage Lottery Fund bandstand relocation and improvements to Cassiobury Park.

Bring a chair or a blanket to sit on, although we’d encourage you to be on your dancing feet!
