Towcester is pleased to announce the
19th Annual Midsummer Music Festival

Broadcast on Saturday 19th June 2021, this event is still available to watch online

The Rotary and Lions clubs of Towcester combined once again to put on another sparkling event hosted by the Town Mayor.

Because of the uncertainty around restrictions for live performances, Midsummer Music 2021 was again a virtual event, and is still available to watch on the Towcester Midsummer Music Festival Facebook and YouTube channels.

30 local musical acts took part and our festival reached over 16,000 people on Facebook (as far away as Australia) with the videos being viewed nearly 4,000 times.

The entertainment was designed for all the family, so, please do watch and support the Mayor's charities.

2022 will be the 20th Anniversary of the Towcester Midsummer Music Festival, so we are very much looking forward to bringing a fantastic LIVE event. Put 17-19 June in your diaries now!

Donations to the Town Mayor's Charities

The Midsummer Music Festival usually raises funds for the Mayor's charities through the sale of programmes and bucket collections during the live festival. However, as this is not possible for a virtual event, you can make donations in the ways listed below.

This year, Towcester Town Mayor, Cllr Damian Reynolds, is fundraising for the Renew169 Wellbeing Cafe and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
