Music in the Park is back with its annual charity concert

Two radio hosts, two live bands, and two charities.

After a tough couple years of cancellations due to the pandemic, the annual charity concert 'Music in the Park' is excited to be making their comeback.


The charity event will be held on Saturday, June 11 in the beautiful grounds of Wistow Hall.


Radio Leicester’s Monica Winfield and Martin Ballard will host the event and two live bands will perform.


Guests can bring their own picnics and enjoy a wonderful evening of live music and fireworks.


Funds raised will be donated to LOROS and children’s hospice Rainbows.
