Warwick Rocks is delighted to be able to announce a celebration in Warwick town centre to mark both Midsummer Night and 1,100 years of the town.

Thanks to the support of Warwick Town Council and 14 Records a special event is planned for June 21, bringing an array of talent to the town centre.

The highlights are:

Acoustic performances from 12 – 4pm in various locations around the Sketts Saturday market in Market Place.

An open mic stage, hosted by amazing local talent Taylor-Louise, from 4pm to 6.30pm at the Rose and Crown pub in the centre of Warwick.

Streetfood arrives in the square from 5pm.

The main stage gets underway at 6.30pm from 10pm.

The main stage will be opened by Rosetta Fire, followed by BBC The Voice’s Battle Round finalist Tom Barnwell, the next spot will be won by a band as part of battle of the bands (more details very soon), The Rushmore will perform next, followed by Ill Gotten Gains to get Warwick partying on Midsummer Night.

Warwick Rocks founder Jack Linstead said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to Warwick Town Council for its support in making this event happen to help the town celebrate 1,100 years.

“There is some amazing talent locally and the aim of this event is to have a great time and to showcase what we have right here in Warwick and the surrounding area.

“I’m certain that there are quite a few people playing on June 21 who have the potential to become household names nationally – just imagine, those attending can say that they were there in Warwick and saw them first!”

Extra entertainment is also being planned with Irish and street dancers making appearances in front of the main stage outside Shire Hall in Warwick’s Market Place at midday and 2pm.
