Brass bands will be performing at a series of FREE Sunday afternoon concerts this summer in Mansfield's Green Flag award winning park, Carr Bank.
The concerts are suitable for all the family, including the dog at this historic park.
The summer programme is as follows:
Sunday 21 May Blidworth Welfare Band
Sunday 11 June Pleasley Colliery Band
Sunday 16 July Whitwell Brass Band
Sunday 13 August Holymoorside Brass Band
Sunday 17 September Shirebrook Miners Welfare Brass Band
The park retained its Green Flag status at the annual awards last year. The award recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country and with a Green Flag flying overhead, it is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible standards, is beautifully maintained and has excellent facilities.
There are lots of other family friendly events taking place in parks across the district including the three Mansfield Summer Festival events at Titchfield Park on 28 July, King George V Park on 9 August and Carr Lane Park on 22 August. Check the What's on calendar to see what's on near you.
Play Forum also host weekly play sessions on parks including Rainers Field, The Heath, Carr Bank Park and Armstrong Road Park. Full details can be found online at www.mansfieldplayforum.co.uk.
Director of Place and Wellbeing at Mansfield District Council, Martyn Saxton, said: "Carr Bank Park will be alive with the sound of music, so why not pack a picnic and soak up the summer with these free events. Bring your friends and family along for a great afternoon out in the fresh air.
