Soundbites, as its name suggests, combines a selection of soups, rolls, sandwiches, cakes and hot drinks available from 12:00 with a short (35-45 mins), unticketed, admission free concert at 1:00 pm. These concerts are run to contribute to the Music Development Fund, which supports our musical work with young people in the town. Concert series dates normally match school term-times.
