“Concert In The Square promises to be another fantastic day out for everyone and we are proud to be putting this yearly festival firmly on the calendar. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Walkabout, Soho, McCooleys, Modo and the Taxi Alliance for contributing to the line–up for what promises to be a full day filled with top DJ’s and live performances. So get yourselves down early to get the best speck on the square” says joint festival organiser John Hughes.
