Leigh Town Council hosted the second of the Summer Season of events on Strand Wharf, Old Town Leigh on Sunday 16th July.
Music-on-Sea welcomed an array of local acts to perform from 11.00am to 4.00pm and invited visitors to pull up a deck chair and enjoy, free of charge.
The line-up was as follows:
· Belfairs Academy Choir
· Solo Performance from Isabel Oliver
· Salvation Army
· Yardarm Folk Orchestra
· Hoy Shanty Crew
· Leigh Orpheus Male Voice Choir
It is the first time we (Leigh Town Council) have held this event and are delighted with the response we had on the day. Some 300 people, many of which wondered upon us, enjoyed the mix of music in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our aim was always to promote the Council, local acts, Strand Wharf as a new facility and enhance ‘Leigh life’.
The next event we are looking forward to is Kids Zoneon Strand Wharf on 30th July, 11.00am - 4.00pm. Children can enjoy fairground rides, performances from singers and storytellers and mascot appearances.
