A local shopping village is opening up its bandstand as a performance area for local choirs and charities in the run up to Christmas.
Heart of the Shires, based just outside of Weedon are making the offer of its performance space to offer locals the opportunity to promote productions, gain exposure, or raise money. Schools, bands, entertainers, choirs, community groups and charities are all welcome to use the stage without paying a charge.
Set around a Victorian courtyard, the Bandstand is available for free half day bookings between the now and Christmas. If the idea proves popular it will be extended into 2016.
Gail Cleland, site administrator at Heart of the Shires comments “To add to the festivities at the Heart of the Shires we decided to open up the Victorian Bandstand. The stage is perfect for the use of local groups looking for a venue to put on a show or fundraise around the Christmas season.”
Available slots for the bandstand are allocated on a first come, first served basis. They can be booked in half day slots. If you are interested in booking the Bandstand or have other enquiries about Heart of the Shires please contact Gail on 01327 349 508.
Built on a former Victorian Farm, Heart of the Shires is located off the A5, about 15 minutes from the centre of Northampton. It offers a selection of individual shops with character in a relaxed shopping environment. The shopping village contains a wide range of elegant gift solutions as well as a popular restaurant with tea room.
