Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is hosting a series of free Summer Sounds gigs and markets across the borough to provide family fun for all ages.
What better way to spend your summer than supporting your local high street and enjoying a sing-song along the way!
All events are running in partnership with community groups and organisations including Ballymena BID, Carrickfergus Town Centre Partnership and Larne Renovation Generation.
Why not bring your grub to the hub and grab a coffee or lunch to go from some of the town centre eateries and enjoy some tunes to get you in the summer mood. Join some of the borough’s favourite bands at Harmony Hub for toe-tapping entertainment on the following Saturdays from 1pm-3pm.
