The Town Centre Partnership is asking young musicians to sign up to showcase their talent at its Market Square gig series, which returns on 10 May and continues each Saturday lunchtime (12.15pm and 1.30 pm) until 27 September.
The return of the series has been made possible by sponsorship from Brooks Macdonald, for the third consecutive year. The events will once again run in conjunction with the Candie Garden concert series, held every Sunday (3-4pm) from 11 May to 28 September and made possible by Town Centre Partnership’s longstanding primary sponsor the Ana Leaf Foundation.
Jack Honeybill, executive officer of the Town Centre Partnership said he was hoping to see some new acts coming forward to perform in Market Square.
‘There is a wealth of young talent in the island and I would invite any bands or solo artists to get in touch if they would like to perform in Market Square. The events are a great way for Guernsey’s youth to showcase their work and help liven up St. Peter Port.
‘Holding a total of 42 open air concerts throughout the busy summer period is a big undertaking and we are extremely grateful to both of our sponsors,’ he said.
Matt Watson, Head of Guernsey at Brooks Macdonald said: ‘We are very proud to be associated with the concerts in Market Square for a third year running. It’s a marvellous opportunity for young performers, particularly newcomers, to gain exposure. We’re hoping for another interesting line-up this season.’
The events also coincide with the Town Carnival, which runs this year from 19 to 26 July.
