With the Bank Holiday weekend approaching there are lots of local music events to keep you entertained! Lots of local pubs are putting on music and there are a few out of town events worth mentioning too.
Here’s a rundown of some top picks from The Parsons Knows Local Music.
Goatfest – This festival has grown over the last few years and is based in Codicote. Headlining this year is 80’s star Kim Wilde. With support from local bands like Westward Ho, Beth Hedges, April Blue, Indi & The Vegas and more this looks like being a great little festival. For more information https://www.goatfestuk.com/
