Music in the Park wristbands all gone now
Published on: 01 Jun 2015
We have reached our maximum numbers for the Music in the Park event now and therefore wristbands can no longer be obtained from the Town Council for this year's event. Since they became available on March 16th council staff and councillors have made the wristbands available on most Saturdays in the Market Place as well as their normal availability from the Guildhall all week.  There is still plenty of opportunity to have a great day with four hours of free events in the Park between 11am and  3pm. For this part of the day you don't need a wristband - Fun in the Park is a free, walk-in event... more

The Local Excellence Market will be filling the Market Place with great crafts, locally grown produce and scrumptious food - don't get me started on the heaven that is Jane's Kitchen Pies followed by Break 4 Cake cheesecake - and that's just breakfast! As always washed down with great coffee from one of the excellent coffee shops surrounding the Market Place - we are lucky to have Java& Co, Added Ingredients and Throwing Buns as independent businesses within twenty paces of the Market Place. Use them tomorrow to fortify your browsing around the superb range of stalls.

This might be your last chance to get wristbands for Music in the Park
Published on: 18 May 2015
If you have been thinking about coming to the fabulous music event taking place in Abbey Gardens on 6th June, the town's much-loved Music in the Park evening, then stop thinking and start acting! We expect that we may soon have to declare that we have no more wristbands available as we are getting close to reaching our maximum safety numbers. At the current rate we would predict that this may even happen at the end of this week. Wristbands are available on request in the Guildhall main entrance between 9am and 5pm any day this week and, provided we haven't had to call a halt, will also be... more
