A DAY of fun and live music is coming to Barons Quay and will coincide with the finale of the Northwich leg of the Queen’s Baton Relay.

Sunday in the Park will be held in River Park from 11am on July 17.

The event will include free activities taking place for all the family, including: children’s rides, dancers, live music, performances, DJs, food and bar until 5pm.

The Queen’s Baton Relay is expected to arrive shortly after 1pm.

Live music continues into the evening with The Ultimate Beatles Tribute Show, the UK’s leading professional Beatles tribute band.

The band, who have performed across the UK, Europe and on BBC’s The One Show, will use authentic instruments and costumes to take visitors on a nostalgic journey through all of the key Beatles eras.

Sunday in the Park is supported by Barons Quay, The Salty Dog Northwich, Radio Northwich, Music Northwich, Cheshire West and Chester Council and the Northwich BID.

All proceeds will go to charities and good causes supported by Rotary in Northwich.

The park event will follow the Rare Vitamin Annual Diversion festival, which takes place on July 15 and 16, featuring two days of alternative pop, punk, and psych.

Chris Mundie, organiser of the Annual Diversion, said: “We can’t wait to bring some of the best alternative bands around to Northwich, we like to think there’s something for everyone on the line up from pop to funk, psych, punk, ska and loads more.

“It’ll be great to be out in the sun by the river in Barons Quay watching some of the best bands in the country.”

Lina Higuita, centre manager at Barons Quay, said: “It’s fantastic to see events taking place in Northwich again this summer and we’re delighted to be hosting both the Rare Vitamin Annual Diversion and Sunday in the Park at Barons Quay.

“From alternative pop to the original kings of pop we are gearing up for an amazing weekend of live music, which we hope everyone will enjoy.”
