Live music will once again be filling the streets of Shrewsbury with a series of musicians playing in the heart of the town this weekend. 

The open-air performances will be in The Square during Saturday and Sunday (23 and 24 July), organised by Shrewsbury BID to add to the welcoming atmosphere in the town centre this summer. 

Music has been a feature in Shrewsbury town centre for the past two years, with Shrewsbury BID arranging performance spaces around the town in conjunction with local musician, Chris Quinn. 

Emma Molyneux, of Shrewsbury BID, said the aim was to add to the mix of activities on offer to encourage people to spend longer in the town centre. 

“As well as the fantastic array of businesses in Shrewsbury, we are always keen to provide a great atmosphere for everyone to enjoy,” she said. 

“Live music has been a popular addition since we first started putting on performances during the summer in 2020, and we are delighted to be continuing this summer. 

“The sessions in The Square during the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday were the most popular yet, so it seems that word is getting around and people are enjoying the chance to relax in the heart of the town and listen to quality music played by local musicians. 

“Performances are arranged by Chris Quinn, an internationally-acclaimed professional musician from Shrewsbury.”
