Farnham Town Council is halfway through its season of free Sunday afternoon music concerts.

Despite the weather, thousands of people have come along and enjoyed live music ranging from jazz and soul to contemporary originals and cover tracks dating from the 1960s to present day.

The concerts have aimed to cater for all tastes and have included opportunities for younger talent to perform. The recent Young Artists’ Showcase featured a mix of groups and solo artists including the band Elias Martell who will be playing at this year’s Weyfest.

Councillor Jill Hargreaves, Lead Member for Tourism and Events says: “The concerts have been very well attended even though the weather has not been particularly summery. Each concert has seen a different local charity hosting the tea tent. This has provided them with a chance to raise awareness about what they do and to raise money for their cause.

“Many of the concerts have also included entertainment for younger members of the audience including face painting, a pop-up craft stall where children could make festival-style headwear, crowns and flowers. The concerts are a wonderful, relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon and I look forward to seeing many more people during the next few weeks.

Music in the Meadow is held at Gostrey Meadow every Sunday from 3 to 5pm. See more information about the bands that will be playing throughout August and early September.
