Since last year's concert was such a success, I thought it would be rude to not have another go this year- see if we can make it even better!
Six Whiting Street and the St Edmundsbury Borough Council, have teamed up in a huge effort to boost public awareness of Armed Forces Day, whilst also raising funds for Help for Heroes.
FRIDAY 24th JUNE:
What better way to end your busy week and start the weekend's festivities then with an open air concert? The gardens will be open for the evening's entertainment from 7pm, with a nice bit of live accoustic music to welcome you in.
7:15pm PHILL HARRINGTON
Prepare to be whisked away by this unique accoustic performance. A rare quality indeed, Phill has that the ability to silence a room with only his voice and his guitar. I promise you will be blown away by just how talented this young man is!
8pm INVERSE OREO
For all of you who are familiar with these guys, you know exactly what to expect... For all of you who are not, you are in for a treat! The Inverse Oreo were formed to cross musical boundaries... Skillfully weaving their way through a range of popular music from rap to pop, they will take you on a majestic journey through time.
The UK`s finest and most authentic tribute to Coldplay.
Coldplace have been on the tribute circuit for about seven years now and have firmly established themselves as one of the top tributes in the world. With many memorable shows in their back catalogue, these guys will give you a live experience you will not forget!
Coming from the east coast town of Grimsby, Coldplace have enjoyed massive success over the last three years including a support slot with sir Bob Geldoff in Malta and a performance in front of an estimated 38,000 people at the Matthew Street Festival in Liverpool. Coldplace don't just play the songs, they play them with all the feeling they deserve.
This concert is ticket only.
Child (under 16) £5

Picnics are welcome, so bring a blanket and pick a spot... The venue has a strict NO GLASS policy, if you bring it- they will take it!
There will be full catering including a superb hog roast, Delicious Burgers and milkshakes, an icecream van, plenty of hot and cold beverages on sale, and a rather lovely beer tent ; ).
Ram Meadow Car Park is situated to the East of the Gardens (right next to the side entrance where you will enter for the concert), and will be open all night.
YES THAT'S RIGHT THERE'S AN AFTERSHOW PARTY TOO!
All pumped up and not ready to go home? Then don't! Come and play with the bands and event team at the aftershow party in LP straight after the concert. There will be an admission charge- this will go to help support our cause Help For Heroes. Papa Bjorn and his merry men/ women will have the wondrous musical love you need to keep you wiggling till you fall down... (over 18's only)
We hope that you will all find time to come and enjoy the weekend's festivities and support a very very worthy cause...
