TWO LIVE music events are set to be held in Hinckley parks this weekend – with the first being held tomorrow (Saturday).

Tomorrow (3 July), Music in the Mead will return inside of the Argents Mead park, where The Misterons, who are an independent Nuneaton-based pop, mod, and ska group, will be the first act to perform this month.

The live music will start in the afternoon at 1pm and run until 3pm.

The event will take place from July through to September, with a performance each weekend for every month.

The full list of Music in the Mead performers and dates are below:

  • The Misterons (3 July)
  • Sam Southall (24 July)
  • Dean Thomas (31 July)
  • Steven Faulkner (14 August)
  • Out of Gas (21 August)
  • Supersonic 90’s (28 August)
  • 4th Avenue (11 September)
  • To Be Determined  (18 September)

During all performances in the Mead, Covid marshals will be in attendance to make ensure that Covid-19 guidelines are being followed.

Visitors are being reminded to stay socially distanced from other attendees and not to sing or shout along with the performance.

Hollycroft Park performances on Sunday

Meanwhile, on Sunday (4 July) the following day, in the nearby Hollycroft Park, a live music event named ‘Music in the Park’ will be held.

It will start at 3pm on Sunday evening, with local Leicestershire-based group Junction 21 bringing a ‘big band’ sound to the park with popular songs.

The Friends of Hollycroft Park have said that there will not be any outdoor refreshment stalls, so attendees are being encouraged to bring their own refreshments.

Attendees are being asked to bring their own chairs with them so that they can sit and watch the performances.

Event organisers have stressed that there can only be a maximum of six people in a group in total, and that they must keep a six metres’ distance.

Whilst mainly being arranged by the Friends of Hollycroft Park, the Borough Council have helped with the event by having Covid marshals in place, to ensure that social distancing measures are being adhered to.
