The Regent’s Park Music Festival will bring alive the Bandstand with music every Sunday afternoon and Bank Holiday Monday from 27 June to 19 September. In addition this year we are going to have Saturday Concerts from the Broadwalk Bandstand across from the Park’s Broadwalk Cafe starting on 26 June.
These free concerts were very popular in 2019, drawing audiences of up to 900 people for each performance of the Regent’s Park Music Festival concerts. This year the Regent’s Park Music Festival will be bigger and better with performances lasting all afternoon from 12.30 to 17.30 on Sundays and Bank Holiday Monday and 14:00 to 16:00 on Saturdays. Programmes will be varied and include local Concert Bands, Jazz Big Bands, small groups, and Choirs – entertainment perfect for your summer picnics and outings. Enjoy music from the Park’s bandstand or Broadwalk Bandstand across from the Broadwalk Cafe from the comfort of a deck chair (available to hire) or on a blanket with your picnic.
Also Regent’s Park will be home to other entertainment activities over the Summer of 2021,i.e. The Open Air Theatre will put on performances
Regent’s Park Music Festival organiser Mark Elliott said, “it is a joy to see the pleasure these concerts give to residents and visitors who hear the Bandstand and Gazebo come to life again after several years of occasional events. We are very grateful to the Park Management and to our many sponsors who enable us to bring music to the Park every summer weekend.”
