The Music Fest will take place from Tuesday July 5 to Sunday July 10 - and it includes more concerts than ever before.

Music Fest Chairman Tim Blades said: “Brooks has played at previous Music Fests prior to lockdown.

“He loved the event so much he has been looking forward to returning since we announced this year’s expanded festival,” added Tim.

“There really is something for everyone, with our ever-popular musicals night and a concert from the Harborough Big Band, as well as a wide variety of classical music featuring musicians and singers.”

All concerts will be staged at St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Great Bowden.

Evening concerts are at 7.30pm, except the closing concert which is at 6pm.

Coffee concerts begin at 12.15pm.
