Ilkeston - Summer Sounds
w/e 30 July 2023

All of this week's pictures were taken with a Nikon D3300.

Large Crowd

Summer Sounds returned to Victoria Park last Sunday afternoon (July 23rd) and a large crowd had already descended on the park shortly after the opening at 3:00pm.


People were all over the park but most had congregated around the Bandstand.
Alan Becks

The first performer to grace the Bandstand was Alan Becks who gave a lively 50s rock'n'roll performance to get the audience in the mood for the acts that were booked to follow - a Marti Pellow tribute, a Kylie tribute and a Take That tribute to close the event by 7:00pm.

The rock'n'roll music was obviously greatly appreciated by some of those present as they left their seats to dance to the music.

Others were content to watch from the park benches whilst more perused the stalls that lined the path, the one towards the right being hosted by the Methodist Church on behalf of all Ilkeston Churches.
History Society

The local History Society had a large selection of their own publications which they were hoping to sell from the new gazebo that they were proudly showing off.
Face Painting

You could also join in the fun and have your face painted - but only if you were over three years of age.
Mr Whippy

Ice cream was available from Mr Whippy.

And hot food was on sale at the Carvery with Donuts and Slush Puppies available in the next stall along.
First Aid Unit

This fine body of men were on hand to ensure everyone's safety throughout the event.
