The programme features a wide range of brass, jazz and concert bands from Northamptonshire and beyond, along with choirs, a ukulele group and solo performers. The Park Café, located close to the bandstand, is kindly sponsoring three performances.

Cllr Jane Birch, Chair of the Community Services Committee at Northampton Town Council, said: “We have a fantastic line-up of musicians booked for this year’s Bands in the Park season, with performances from all the traditional brass bands, some new acts such as the Friday Night Konspiracy funk soul band, old favourites the Fynnius Fogg Band and an Elvis Tribute, which went down very well last year!”
