Music lovers are being invited to soak up the sounds of two brass bands in parks in Bramley and Stanningley this summer – after last year’s concerts were cancelled due to COVID-19.
The family friendly events have been funded by the ward councillors and will see Cawthorne Brass Band perform on Sunday 1 August at Stanningley Park and SoundTrack Brass on Sunday 22 August at Bramley Park. Both events will start at 2.30pm.
With the current restrictions in place, the Councillors and officers have worked to reschedule the events to ensure that the local communities have opportunity to enjoy the concerts in a safe environment.
It will be a welcome sight and sound for the area, with the 2020 concerts cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Councillors Kevin Ritchie, Caroline Gruen and jools Heselwood are encouraging residents to come down and enjoy the atmosphere, soaking up the sounds of the brass bands.
Councillor Kevin Ritchie (Labour, Bramley and Stanningley) said:
“Following a year of uncertainty and unprecedented challenges, we are delighted to welcome the return of music concerts to our parks this summer.
“I’d like to thank the teams involved in helping rearrange these concerts due to the government guidelines as well as both the SoundTrack Brass and Cawthorne Brass Band for their commitment in being a part of these exciting events during August.
“We encourage the local communities to come and enjoy these fantastic concerts in a Covid safe environment. It is wonderful to be able to host the bands in both Bramley Park and Stanningley Park once again – they are sure to be great days out for everybody attending.”
