Mayor John Lloyd got ready to rock in preparation for this year’s Stevenage Day when Queen guitar legend ‘Brian May’ joined him in the Town Square.
Queen tribute band ‘The Bohemians’ will be opening the Stevenage Day sound stage – sponsored by Black Star Amplification – at 1pm as the Mayor’s special guest act. Cllr Lloyd welcomed Bohemians guitarist, Christopher Gregory to town ahead of their big performance on Sunday 26 August at King George V Playing Fields.
Fresh from touring Europe, the band will bring the magic of ‘Queen’ to Stevenage performing classic hits including: ‘Don’t Stop Me Now,’ ‘You’re My Best Friend’, ‘We Are The Champions’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and many more.
“In the year of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, it’s fitting that the UK’s best Queen tribute act should headline Stevenage Day!” said Cllr Howard Burrell, Executive member for Children and Young People, Culture, Sport and Leisure.
Cllr Burrell added, “With The Bohemians bringing classic Queen anthems to the sound stage, a sizzling line-up of local performances, arena acts and hundreds of stalls, it’s set to be a Stevenage Day not to be missed!”
Town centre car parks will be free for the day at The Forum, Aldi, Marshgate, Southgate and St George’s Multi-Storey.
If you would like to get involved, stalls for organisations and performance slots are booking up quick so don’t miss your chance. Get in touch with the council’s Leisure Services Manager on 01438 242206 or visit Stevenage.gov.uk/Stevenage-day for more information and an application form.
