Returning to Bournemouth Square for a second year is Summer Live – a free seven-week programme of outdoor musical performances and art.
New for 2015 and now open is the Summer Garden bar – a beautiful floral themed bar open all day, with acoustic music sets and live art demonstrations from 5pm-9pm. The Summer Live programme will run weekly Tuesday through to Saturday until mid-August.
A variety of music genres from Rock and Pop to Country and Folk will be represented by local talent including: Soulcreek, Chris Payn, Paul Kinvig, Gugge 2000, Graham Seaton, Joe Potter, Matt Black, E-J Evans and pianist Matt Black.
The entertainment programme will also be supported by live art demonstrations by LucanArt, body painting from Dragonfly as well as creative showcases by local artists.
Town Centre Manager Caron Khan said “ We are proud to be bringing Summer Live back to Bournemouth Town Centre for another fantastic programme of free live music and art. By showcasing local talent and providing entertainment for the public each evening we want to encourage people to enjoy Bournemouth Square, the gardens and the surrounding eateries. Summer Live is about bringing life back to our beautiful town centre, for everyone.”
Summer Live has been brought to the town centre by Bournemouth Borough Council and is supported by Bournemouth TownWatch, the Town Centre BID, Absolute Music, plus local acts and artists and organisers Strawberry Fields RePresents.
