The summer sessions have been designed to bring some summer ambience to the town for visitors before they head to some of the local restaurants, bars and cinema.

Come down with family and friends to enjoy an hour of free live music and support local artists, before heading to one of Beeston's fantastic pubs and restaurants. This is a fantastic way to support your local economy and town centre, whilst enjoying the varied night life Beeston has to offer!

Why not be environmentally friendly and walk, cycle or take the bus or tram to the event?

Friday18 is an event which has developed through the Council's partnership with the German town of Gutersloh.
