Carnival Band Night

July 13 @ 19:00 - 23:30

- Free – £12.50

We are delighted to announce that Toploader will headline after it’s long absence the Carnival Band Night.  An English rock band who need no introduction anywhere in the world, they are recognised most of all for their cover of King Harvest’s US hit “Dancing in the Moonlight” written by Sherman Kelly, which became a global hit for the band. The song has over 530 million plays on Spotify and is universally recognised as one of the greatest songs of the decade following its release in 2000.

The Band Night is about giving local bands the opportunity to appear on the Carnival main stage and experience a once-in-a-life time opportunity to play on the same bill as global names who have sold millions of albums.  Events Chairman Nick Head commented “The Carnival committee were keen to support the great work undertaken at Fairycroft House.  Tim and his team provide much needed facilities for bands and performers alike to showcase their talents to the people of Saffron Walden and if we can inspire more people to take up music, to follow their dreams, to visit Fairycroft House and to believe that they too may get an opportunity like this, then we have achieved what we set out to do with the Band night”.

We are excited to add the 3 winners of the Fairycroft House Eva’s DreamMoonshine Coyote and The Hooligans. The Bands will support the amazing Toploader as well as Wrong Stewart and The Farces.

5 live bands, 1 night of great entertainment.  Do come and support our winners as they take to the stage on a glorious night of local and global musical megastars.
