“So many businesses work together to help fill the town for the weekend to benefit all licensed premises and many more local businesses.

“As usual The Bank Stage is holding two massive events.

“On Easter Thursday we have THE ‘Ultra 90s Vs 2000s’ EXPERIENCE – Live Dance Anthems! A show like no other.

“They fill venues up and down the country and we are very lucky to have them doing the opening festival charity gig with donations to The Christie on the door.

“On Good Friday we have QE2 – a tribute to Queen who have packed out The Bank Stage year on year.

“Join us for a night of musical magic as we pay homage to the legendary rock band Queen. Again, this is a charity gig with donations to The Christie on the door.

“We are really looking forward to this year, we have 23 live acts and too many DJ sets to count over the Easter weekend.”
