Three days of music celebration begins today in Huddersfield.

The Concerts in the Park star with a special performance of "Thank you for the Music", which is a live show featuring the music of ABBA and the Bee Gees.

On Saturday the stage will be set for a Jubilee proms evening, with the Orchestra of Opera North.And finally on Sunday chart-topper Tinchy Stryder will headline Party in the Park.

It's great news that Tinchy Stryder will be performing at this year's Party in the Park, along with "ones to watch" Vince Kidd and Marlon Roudette. Over the course of the weekend, Greenhead Park will come alive witha whole host of musicians and performers and we're hoping the sun makes an appearance too!
