Relax…and enjoy the Summer Bands Programme
The programme of free concerts will kick off on Sunday 24 July and will run until Sunday 25 September with performances taking place between 3pm and 5pm at the bandstand beside Eastrop Lake.
Visitors to the park can enjoy an exciting range of musical ensembles starting with East Woodhay Silver Band followed by saxophone groups, brass bands and a concert band.
Eastrop Park is a popular town centre park which has held green flag status for 22 years. Visitors to the park come from across the borough to enjoy the wildlife, boating lake, tree trail, trim trail, children’s play area and paddling pool.
Leader of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Cllr Simon Bound said: “It is brilliant that the Summer Bands programme has returned to Eastrop Park.
“I would encourage residents to pack up a picnic and bring their families, a blanket and a deckchair to enjoy the facilities in this fantastic park along with a wonderful afternoon of free music.”
