The Towcester Midsummer Music Festival was established in 2003 by the Town Mayor, Cllr Geoffrey Iley as a way to provide fun and good music for the community in the centre of the Towcester, hosted by the Rotary Club of Towcester, Towcester Lions and Towcester Centurions.

As well as conducting the opening ceremony, the Town Mayor, acts as Master of Ceremonies throughout the whole weekend; closing Saturday night with a traditional fireworks display. Profits from the festival go to the Town Mayor's charities.
