Thame’s biggest music event is this weekend

Thame Town Music Festival returns tomorrow and Saturday and promises to be even bigger and better than before! Now in its third year, the festival continues to thrive and be so well-supported by the community.

The event begins tomorrow (Friday) with a Classical Concert at St Mary’s Church (tickets on sale from the Town Hall until midday tomorrow, then available on the door) and a free Songwriter’s Competition Final followed by an intimate performance by Luke Concannon at Christchurch.

On Saturday, there really is something for everyone with nine town centre venues hosting a variety of music genres from country to indie and rock to blues and everything in between. The main stage, outside the Town Hall, will host headliners Neville Staple Band and the winner of the Songwriter’s Competition, meanwhile The James Figg, Thame Snooker Club, The Birdcage, The Six Bells (look out for the stage in the car park!) and The Swan Hotel will host 40 acts between them. You can also enjoy folk music at The Cross Keys, performances from Thame Music Academy students at the Masonic Hall or acoustic music at Rumseys. Don’t miss the Photography Exhibition at Thame Museum between 10am and 4pm featuring a hand-picked selection of the best photographs from the previous two music festivals.

Programmes are on sale at the Town Hall for £2 and detail the full event programme with timings.

Please note between 9:30am and midnight on Saturday 13 July the High Street, Buttermarket and Cornmarket will be closed. Vehicles will not be allowed to park in the road or on the pavements of these roads. Anyone parking will run the risk of causing an offence by obstruction and cars will be removed. Access will only be permitted to residents and businesses with private parking. From 6am the High Street Car Park will be closed to enable the main stage to set up. However additional parking is available on Southern Road Recreation Ground.
