Castle Grounds Bandstand Provides Ideal Anniversary Setting
A community music group is celebrating its 50th anniversary by taking centre-stage in a big way. Tamworth Arts Club is to commemorate the major milestone in its history by performing in Tamworth Castle Grounds on Saturday 9 July. They will be taking to the circular stage of the bandstand within the delightful grounds in the shadow of Tamworth Castle.

The free concert will see Tamworth Arts Club celebrate 50 years of performing musical theatre on stage in the Staffordshire market town. And they are inviting people to get along to the Castle Grounds bandstand to join the band as they deliver a selection of their favourite big show tunes from the last five decades.

Tamworth Arts Club will also have its 50 year archive available for visitors to view.
