Details

Dust off your cowboy boots and grab your dance partner; Live at the Bandstand is back for 2017! Head on down to Battersea Park for a country and western hoedown – dancing, drinks in the sunshine, hay bales, and cowboy hats – Yeehaww! The event takes place on Saturday 17 June from 12noon to 6pm at the Victorian Bandstand in Battersea Park and is suitable for all ages. Entry is FREE, so bring your friends, family, kids and the dogs!

Live at the Bandstand are very happy to welcome back Battersea’s own The Lavender Hillbillies, as well as newcomers The Bara Bara Band from Tooting. We are also very excited to have one of London’s foremost festival bands Cut A Shine join us, as they dart from festival to festival raising a dust bowl of dance wherever they go. Also gracing the stage will be Wandsworth’s own James Meakin playing country covers with a London twang, and Camden Town’s Dana Immanuel and her all-girl Stolen Band who promise to get your feet stomping. Keeping the mood going all day we have DJ Joe Buirski of Cut A Shine on the decks.

Sambrooks Brewery will be bringing a well-stocked bar with beer, Pimms, and soft drinks to keep the afternoon flowing. There will also be a cocktail bar provided by a London favourite Honest Folk. There will be a range of food stalls including meat cooked in a locomotive engine from Smokoloko, Live at the Bandstand returners Pizza In Giro, Caribbean from Sensational Flavas, and Mexican burritos from El Gringo, as well as some sweet treats and coffee.

Activities to keep the kids busy include some small funfair rides for children from Drakes funfair (often spotted in many a Wandsworth park), and free western-inspired workshops in the workshop tent. The Friends of Battersea Park will also have their stall at the event providing information on membership, the park, and how you can get involved.

Full music programme:
12:30pm – 1pm James Meakin
1:15pm – 2pm The Bara Bara Band
2:15pm – 3pm Dana Immanuel and the Stolen Band
3:30pm – 4:30pm Cut A Shine

Live at the Bandstand is managed and delivered by Enable Events Team on behalf of Wandsworth Council.
