Tennessee Boogie Boys promise upbeat authentic 1950’s Rock ‘n’ Roll, Rockabilly, Country with a little bit of blues added in; with hits from Elvis, Bill Haley, BR549, Fats Domino and many more. Threefold is an exciting acoustic covers trio who explore interesting takes on songs, classic to contemporary, with smooth three part harmony as a specialty. Food will be provided by Hertfordshire family business Dough with the Flow, simply the best woodfired pizzas around, while drinks come courtesy of Little Italy Bar Co. Join us with your picnic rugs or chairs and you’re welcome to bring refreshments too.
Lydekker Park is a beautiful green space near the centre of Harpenden and is enjoyed by residents and visitors as a place to walk, relax and take part in leisure activities. The Park boasts open grass areas with mature trees, shrub beds, and wildlife ponds. A selection of new trees have been planted in the last year as part of Harpenden Town Council’s ongoing policy to increase biodiversity and combat climate change.
