A MUSICAL extravaganza will be taking place in the beautiful setting of a Stansted school on Saturday July 11.
The eighth Music in the Park will welcome many familiar faces as well as some newcomers to the event at Bentfield Primary School on Rainsford Road.
An excellent line up of local bands will offer a wide range of musical styles between 2pm and 8pm.
Headlining the event for the second consecutive year is talented seven-piece band Hybrid 7. With instruments including a trumpet and tenor sax this band creates a distinctive live sound.

The Bentfield School Choir will be heading to the stage to perform during the afternoon.

Bring a picnic, family and friends and enjoy a wonderful day! Head to the barbecue for wraps, burgers, sausages and veggie kebabs; to the bar for draught beer, lager, wine or fizz and not to forget the essential jug of Pimm's.
Plenty of soft drinks will be available to buy, as well as sweets, popcorn and ice cream.
There will be a smoking area to one corner of the field and guests will be asked not to smoke in other areas.
Last year the event was again a complete sell-out, with fantastic advance ticket sales.
Tickets cost �7.50 in advance or �8.50 on the day and are available from the school or by calling Louise on 01279 647 568. Children under 16 go free with a paying adult.
