Free outdoor concerts to return with Music in the Parks, a series of events in Cambridge
Live outdoor music is to return, with Music in the Parks – a series of carefully planned concerts organised by Cambridge City Council.
Featuring an array of music from jazz and folk to brass bands, these concerts are all free and will take place in a variety of neighbourhood parks, including Cherry Hinton Hall and Jesus Green, on Sunday afternoons during August and September.
Cllr Anna Smith, executive councillor for communities, said: “These relaxed music events, organised by Cambridge City Council, will give people a long overdue opportunity to enjoy some live outdoor entertainment, with the added benefit of the city’s green spaces at their summer best.
“As previously announced, our large-scale events are sadly not going ahead this summer, but planning will soon be under way for 2022, when I hope these much-loved events will return to the city’s calendar.
“In the meantime, I hope that Cambridge residents will enjoy Music in the Parks, listening to great music in some of our beautiful community open spaces – and I also hope that this will be a taste of things to come as we ease out of lockdown.”
Music in the Parks is sponsored by Arm. Simon Humphrey, senior sustainability manager at Arm, said: “Cambridge has long been a hub of creativity and it’s positive to see the return of live events to the city.”
