The hugely popular Music in the Meadows is set to return to Iron Acton.  The two nights of music at the start of July.
Acton Aid, who put on events to raise money for local good causes and charity are behind the events in the Parish Meadows.
On Friday 1st July, the 4th Mash in the Meadows has four outstanding local bands. Several have played at Glastonbury and toured throughout Europe and one has played at Buckingham Palace.
Elles Bailey and her band open the Mash. Elles has been dubbed the Blues Princess and her unique “gravelly” voice delivers a range of blues and soul numbers.
Flash Harry are back by popular demand to play their energetic portfolio of Cajun and Balkan blues, folk and rock.
Mad Apple Circus (three of their members grew up in Iron Acton) will play their original blend of horn-fuelled styles, built on Ska/Hip-Hop/Jazz and Latin grooves.
Gee Baby I Love You headline the evening and promise genuine soul, raw funk and blues with professional, exhilarating showmanship.
The Proms in the Meadows is on Saturday 2nd July, and is rather more upmarket. It’s now in its twelfth year, giving people to dress up, bring a picnic and enjoy music from the Bristol Millennium Orchestra and other local performers.
This year the theme is Spanish but the evening will include the classic “Last Night at the Proms” finish.
The event features The Bristol Millennium Orchestra and soloists from the Royal College of Music, Junior Fascinating Rhythm, The Iron Acton Community Choir, The Kathryn Hurley Dance Academy, Fabulous Flamenco and as well as prizes for Best Spanish Hat.
Spokesman, Richard Hunter said “People who have attended previous concerts have been so impressed at how a small village can put on such a professional event. Many people get together a group of their friends to hold a party within a party. I urge people to buy their Early Bird tickets before the end of May to save money and before they sell out as tickets are limited.”
