Enjoy a glorious summer full of live music in castle shadow
A fabulous mixture of live music and the open air can soon be enjoyed in the Staffordshire town of Tamworth when a programme of Summer Bandstand Concerts makes a welcome return with a terrific new line-up starting on Saturday 22 June. Organisers Tamworth Borough Council have put together a programme featuring a variety of bands, singers and clubs who will all collectively take to the delightful Tamworth Castle Grounds bandstand to delight audiences for free throughout the summer season. The 2019 programme will be launched in style with Tamworth Twangers Ukelele Group, who will perform within the bandstand on the Upper Lawn of the castle grounds between 1pm and 3pm. Visitors are invited to join the group for an afternoon of ballads, wartime tributes, popular folk, skiffle and country music.

Sponsored by the adjoining Ankerside Shopping Centre, all the concerts are free of charge. Performances generally take place at intervals between 1pm and 4pm subject to weather conditions. Councillor John Chesworth, Cabinet member for Culture and Operational Services at Tamworth Borough Council, said: "The Summer Bandstand Concerts organised by our Arts & Events team provide the perfect opportunity for people to enjoy an afternoon of live entertainment in beautiful surroundings. The bandstand is an historic feature of the Castle Grounds and it's great to see it being brought to life with live music and performances. Whether you're taking a break from shopping, or enjoying a picnic with friends and family, we'd love to see you there enjoying the music on offer." The bandstand concerts are part of a calendar of outdoor events organised by Tamworth Borough Council's Arts & Events team. For the full 2019 line-up please visit
