AFTER two years, Bury Bandemonium is returning with a bang to bring music to the town centre next month.

The free open-air event on Saturday, June 18 will be the town’s seventh Bandamonium.

Shoppers and families can follow the sounds of brass, concert bands and choirs who will be performing in various locations around the town’s centre.

Organiser Andrew Taylor is hoping the weather stays dry.

He said: "It’s absolutely fantastic to have Bury Bandemonium back after two years of Covid.

“Bands and choirs have begun rehearsing and are excited about performing to the shoppers who visit our wonderful town centre."
