IT’S time to party in Huddersfield.
Top musical acts will take to the stage in Huddersfield this summer in a special three-day festival in Greenhead Park to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
It marks a return of the hugely-popular shows to Greenhead Park, which has been renovated in a £5m scheme.
Concerts in the Park will begin on Friday, June 8 with a celebration of the 1970s – when the Queen was celebrating 25 years on the throne.
Easy Theatres will perform music by Abba and the Bee Gees in the special one-off show called Thank-you for the Music.
The Orchestra of Opera North will put on a proms concert in the park the following evening, featuring guest solo artists and plenty of opportunities to wave Union flags.
Sunday afternoon will see the return of the Party in the Park pop event.
The annual concert was last held in Huddersfield up to 2008. The event was moved to Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury while Greenhead Park was revamped. It did not take place last year due to budget cuts.
