The free family event organised by Rushmoor Borough Council will be taking place at the Princes Gardens Bandstand from 11am until 3.30pm. The event encourages the whole community to get involved with music and will showcase five local acts.
Brass bands, groups and solo artistes will be taking to the stage, including folk duo - No Small Thing, blues band - The Crosstown Trio, world music - Wheelcraft, solo artistes - Krabbers and the South East’s finest - Alder Valley Brass Band. There will also be the chance for children to have a go at playing lots of different instruments thanks to local music school, The Rock and Pop Foundation.
Carla Dale, Town Centre and Cultural Officer at Rushmoor Borough Council said: “We are really looking forward to being part of the national Our Big Gig event. The free family afternoon will feature some brilliant local talent and we’re encouraging families to come down with a picnic and enjoy the entertainment.”

Organised in partnership with Superact, the Princes Gardens concert is just one of 300 events taking place across the UK as part of the national Our Big Gig celebrations this summer.
The aim of the event is to bring people from all backgrounds together, to listen to the best local musicians and give the public a chance to pick up an instrument and get involved in music making.
