Music in the Mead

Dates for 2020

Popular band performing in Argents Mead

It is with regret that Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council have taken the decision to cancel all of their events that were due to take place before the end of May 2020.

We have made this decision in accordance with the latest government guidance, that we should stop non-essential contact with other people, this includes large gatherings and crowded places such as our events. We will continue to monitor and review the situation for any events that are due to take place from June onwards and of course keep you updated.

All performances will take place in the bandstand in Argents Mead on Saturday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm, with a short interval in the middle.
