A summer season of brass band concerts featuring some of the region’s best bands in Selby Park is helping Selby Abbey celebrate its 950th anniversary.
The programme of concerts has been funded by the Central Area Community Engagement Forum and is being delivered by Selby’s leisure providers, Inspiring healthy lifestyles.
As well as the band performances there will also be traditional and fun children’s entertainment including clowns and magicians. All the events are free.
The next Summer Picnic Brass Sunday afternoon concert will take place in the Park on Sunday 21 July (1pm and 3pm) with children’s entertainment from Wonder William who will be performing walkabout clown comedy. The York RI Golden Rail Band will be performing.
Another concert will take place Sunday 25 August ((1pm and 3pm) with music from the Harrogate Band. There’ll also be a Children’s Puppet Show (12.45pm and 1.45pm) courtesy of Mark and his Magic Kingdom.
