Summer Streets 2016

Held for the third time in Thompson Park, Southwick, our Summer Streets music festival attracted an audience of eight thousand people who enjoyed a weekend of live music which included the premiere of a Cultural Spring research and development project, Putting the Band Back Together.

The event, hosted as usual by the BBC’s Jeff Brown and Ray Spencer from The Customs House, was headlined by Field Music and included performances from the Royal Northern Sinfonia, The Cornshed Sisters, indie band Martha and South Shields band the Heavenly Thrillbillies as well as a host of different activities, workshops and performances from local artists.
