Britain’s biggest music festival: a summer of free community concerts
Communities Minister Don Foster has announced that 250 free concerts will go ahead this summer, featuring the best of local musical talent.
The concerts will be both free for people to attend and for musicians to enter and will bring people from different backgrounds together to listen to a wide variety of music. Over 200,000 people are expected to attend the concerts in July, making the attendance even greater than that of festivals such as Glastonbury.
Compering St Pancras’s ‘Station Sessions’ performances from the Pandemonium Drummers, the Vision Choir and the Uke Choir, Communities Minister Don Foster launched the ‘Our Big Gig’ series of concerts and pledged to make it Britain’s biggest free festival.
