This Sunday (13 May) will see the inaugural performance of the Candie Gardens open air concert series, which will continue throughout the summer months until the last weekend of September.
The events – which will take place on consecutive Sundays at Candie Gardens – have been organised by the Town Centre Partnership with the financial backing of De Putron Fund Management.
Kicking off the series this Sunday will be Tres Amis, with later dates seeing a number of overseas acts including the The Chichester University Big Band, Stanley’s Dixie Street Band and The Blue Note Jazz Quartet along with local performers such as John Byrne and Guernsey Concert Brass.
Hayley de Putron, Head of Investor Relations at De Putron Fund Management said: “It is wonderful to be able to showcase so much great talent in such a beautiful setting. We hope the series of shows will meet with similar success to previous years.”
The concerts will take place by the bandstand at Candie Gardens and run from 3 to 4pm. Entrance is free and in the event of bad weather, Guernsey Museums have kindly offered to house Candie Garden Concert performances in the theatre.
Jack Honeybill, executive officer of the Town Centre Partnership said he is looking forward to seeing the performances each week.
“It is a privilege to hold these annual concerts and we are grateful for the support we receive from our sponsor as well as those who have attended in previous years. The Town Centre Partnership is committed to improving St Peter Port and believe that such quality and vibrant performances bring great cultural value to the town area,” he said
