20 Jan Free Sunday afternoon music in Government Gardens
Bring along a picnic and settle in to enjoy free local entertainment as Music at the Band Rotunda returns to Government Gardens on Sunday afternoons in February and March 2021.
The series will cover seven Sunday afternoon sessions from 1pm – 3pm, starting Sunday 7 February.
Now in its fourteenth year, Music at the Band Rotunda continues to offer local performers the opportunity to showcase their talents each Sunday.
Rotorua Lakes Council Community Arts Advisor, Marc Spijkerbosch, has enjoyed watching this annual event grow.
“It is fantastic to be able to showcase some of our passionate local talent in these free performances. Many regulars arrive early to secure their special spot and bring along picnics and deck chairs”, says Spijkerbosch.
The programme will offer two different performances each afternoon, featuring local musicians and groups including jazz, blues, country, roots, ukulele, show tunes, rock’n’roll, symphonic bands and much more.
