Sounds Green – Prime Bass

The Garden opens its gates late on Wednesday evenings throughout July to host a season of open-air music from Cambridge Summer Music

  • 3rd July 2024 - 3rd July 2024
  • 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Well-known for its performances at the lighter end of the musical spectrum and popular family concerts, local ensemble Prime Brass comprises a 12-strong band of trumpets, French horn, trombones, tuba and percussion. With something for young and old alike expect toe-tapping music that is sure to have you up and dancing! 

The Sounds Green series runs every Wednesday in July.

Set on the Garden’s Main Lawn, visitors can relax and enjoy informal and fun live music with family and friends, on a (hopefully) warm and balmy evening.

🎵 Music begins at 6.30pm, lasting approximately one hour.

🎵 Visitors are welcome to enjoy the Garden until 8.30pm when the gates will close.

🎵 Picnics are welcome. Food and drink will be provided by the Wandering Yak and The Garden Café. Ice cream by Jack’s Gelato.

🎵 Bring a rug or picnic chair and relax in beautiful surroundings to some stunning musical sounds!
