MUSICIANS in Gosport have been lined up to take part in a nationwide bandstand marathon.

All across the UK, performers will be taking part in the event on Sunday afternoon to mark the end of the London Olympics and Paralympics.

From 1pm to 5pm on Sunday at the Falkland Gardens in Gosport there will be free entertainment from the Big Noise Community Samba Band, recent winners of Gosport’s battle of the bands Kelly and the Acoustics, folk and ceilidh from Three Penny Bit and Planet Graffiti.

Charlotte Watkins, who is helping organise the Gosport event, said: ‘This is a lovely opportunity to showcase the talent in the Gosport area.

‘This is a free event for the community. Bring your picnic blankets, camping chairs, picnic, friends and family and enjoy the music, lovely gardens, and hopefully the sunshine too.’
