Keynsham Music Festival returns

The organisers of Keynsham Music Festival have announced that an event will go ahead next month.

After months of deliberation, it has been revealed that a Mini Music Festival will run from Thursday September 2 to Friday September 10.

A number of musical events will be taking place at local venues.

In the Memorial Park during the weekend September 4 and 5, there will be several performances of Bert – a comic circus show for all the family – together with a variety of workshops, including one where visitors can try their hand at juggling.

Two shows will take place in Temple Court - Attila the Stockbroker on September 2 and Opera in a Box on September 8.

The festival finale, in the bandstand area of the park on Friday September 8, sees the return of Da Fuchaman and the Fire Blaze Band (pictured above), who headlined the last festival in 2019. There was no festival in 2020 because of Covid restrictions.

Audience numbers for all next month’s events will be strictly controlled and will be on a first come, first served basis.

Festival chairman Mike May said: “Our focus has always been on creating an environment where people can feel comfortable and stay safe. We may insist on certain Covid protocols. We know you will all understand and help us to achieve some happiness and joy for everyone.”

More details of the festival will be announced nearer the time. To keep up to date, go to the festival’s page on Facebook or visit http://www.keynshammusicfestival.co.uk/
