The Dandy Horses, an energetic contemporary folk band, will kick off one of three ‘Music in the Park’ events on Sunday June 22 from 2-5pm, at Silent Valley Mountain Park in Kilkeel.
The events, organised by NI Water, are designed to attract visitors to the picturesque mountainous park.
Anna Marshall, organiser of the event comments: “This is the third year we have held this music at the park event in Silent Valley and due to its resounding success we have organised three events this summer.
“The event will be very much about relaxation, there is no better way to enjoy a lazy Sunday than sitting back and appreciating the scenery while being serenaded.
“Spectators at previous events simply relaxed with their family, picnicked and enjoyed the sweet sounds of the music. This year, we have the Ulster Wildlife Trust who will be offering environmental craft activities for the little ones and various food stalls offering everything from burgers to ice cream.
“We look forward to welcoming back many of the same visitors and some new faces to Silent Valley.”
NI Water has recently improved some of the Parks’ facilities, including new walking trails. Previous investment has included an enhanced playpark, improved toilet facilities and new displays within the visitors centre.
On Sunday July 13, we will welcome the Lee Hedley blues band and on Sunday August 31, the Sandrunners, a country and bluegrass band.
This is a free event however normal admission charges apply into the car park.
