Thornbury Carnival Presents ‘Swing in the Park’
Friday 5th July 2024
Gates open at 5.30pm (entry via High Street only)
Thornbury Swing Band (6.30pm-8.40pm)*
Returning for ‘Swing in the Park’ for the third time, the much-loved Thornbury Swing Band will perform swing jazz instrumental and vocal numbers from the 1930s right up to modern times. All the Band’s members share their talents free-of-charge so any money raised from their performances is donated to good causes in the local area.
Maximum Robbie (9.00pm-10.00pm)
Maximum Robbie tribute, Scott Borley, will be taking to the stage to entertain you with Robbie Williams’ array of Swing hits. Scott is one of the most entertaining and energetic professional tribute artists on the European circuit, and his energy and resemblance to Robbie is striking, as you can see from this video where he sang on stage with the man himself. Can you spot the difference!?!
