For resource reasons, Lambeth Council will not in future be putting on a programme of summer concerts on the bandstand. They have however granted some funding to the Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee to enable us to put on some summer concerts.
The Clapham Society will also be holding its annual concert on the Bandstand.
The programme for August and September will be as follows:
Sunday 7 August. Crystal Palace Band. Traditional brass band music, by one of London’s oldest established bands.
Saturday 13 August. 7Suns Band. An energising blend of Afro, Latin, Caribbean, Funk, Jazz and Rock.
Saturday 20 August. Swing at the Bandstand. A dance event by Swing Patrol. Dance demonstrations with opportunities to join in, with professional instructors.
Sunday 4 September. Junction Jazz. Traditional jazz and Dixie by a popular local group (the Clapham Society concert)
Sunday 18 September. London Allstars. Steel drum band with an authentic Caribbean flavour.
All concerts are from 3 pm to 5 pm, and are free to the public.
