Photos from Grooves on the Green 2017

More than 3000 people attended this year's Grooves on the Green festival at Ashley Cross. We went along and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, tasty food and drink options and some great live music over the weekend of 15 & 16 July 2017.

This year was a family focused event with activities for children including zorbing, face painting and temporary tattoos. And for local big-wigs, there was even a VIP area called the Groove Garden, well placed by the stage and hosted by Saxe Coburg.

Music came from a large and varied line up including local party band BoMo Swing, Si Genaro, The Guns of Navarone and the Mother Ukers with their ukulele versions of pop and rock classics, headlining was Gary Stringer of Reef fame.

The popular event helped raise money for the chosen charity, Diverse Abilities Plus.

Below is a selection of photos from the weekend. Share your photos too, tweet us @visitbmth
