Here’s hoping for Blue Skies this Saturday 2nd September between 12 and 2pm”
The Bandstand Season was originally advertised to conclude on Saturday 19 August. Due to the amazing support and interest from performers, the Saturday lunchtime sessions will continue through until 16 September between 12 noon and 2pm from the bandstand in Jubilee Garden, CB10 1EH – and is FREE to attend . Bands still to perform in forthcoming weeks include Escaping Today and Saffron Walden Town Band. There is no need to book, just bring a chair or blanket, relax and enjoy the music.

From jazz to funk, and choirs to theatrical performances, all genres are covered – there will be something for everyone. Said a Town Council spokesperson, “these casual lunchtime sessions are FREE to attend – no need to book, just pop in, relax and enjoy the music.”
Special thanks to Arkwright & Co estate agents who are sponsoring the Bandstand Season, Said Tom Arkwright, “Arkwright and Co are delighted to continue to support our local community and look forward to working with SWTC with the upcoming Bandstand Season. We look forward to seeing everyone there over the coming weeks.”
With inclusivity and accessibility at the heart of SWTC’s application to The National Lottery Awards for All, the grant received for the Coronation Celebrations will see the portable ramp purchased for the bandstand put to good use during the forthcoming events. Thank you to #NationalLottery players for making this possible. It will make a difference to Saffron Walden’s Bandstand Season and its musicians; thanks to #NationalLottery funding.
Saffron Walden Town Council look forward to seeing you there!
