A SUMMER of music is in store at one of the Redditch's most recognisable landmarks.
The bandstand on Church Green will be put to use once a month throughout the summer following a successful trial event last year.
The first free event will feature the Alcester Victoria Silver Band and will run from 12pm to 2pm on Saturday, May 11, with further days planned monthly until September 14.
Children's activities including a bouncy castle, face painting and art workshops are also set to be on offer.
Graham Smith from the Redditch Local History Society said: "We're so excited to be involved in this programme helping to celebrate the diversity of talent in the town and also the heritage and beauty of the bandstand area. Come along and help support your local area."
John Godwin, head of leisure and cultural services at Redditch Borough Council, added: "The bandstand events bring people together from all across the borough.
"There is a great line up of bands this year, everything from choirs to Caribbean bands. Watch this space to find out which bands are due to play when."
