Oundle International Festival is delighted to announce legendary ABBA show Björn Again as the headline act for this year’s Picnic in the Park
Kicking off proceedings at 5pm on Saturday 14 July will be Oundle Rocks, a showcase of talented young local bands, followed by fabulous world music act Grupo Lokito. This ground-breaking band, a great hit on the music festival circuit, offers an exciting fusion of Cuban and Congolese music featuring salsa and rumba beats. Listening to them is a fast track to party central; their non-stop beat is guaranteed to get even the most reluctant dancer tapping their toes!
World-famous ABBA act Björn Again will then take to the stage to wow the crowds with their performance of some of the greatest hits of ABBA such as ‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Waterloo’ and ‘Money Money Money’. The legendary ABBA show, founded in Australia in 1988, has now notched up more than 50,000 performances in 70 countries. Prepare to dance the night away as Björn Again rocks Oundle’s Heron Rogers Field (situated between Benefield Road and Glapthorn Road).
Make an evening of it by bringing your own picnic, drinks, chairs and tables or purchase snacks, beer and wine from our range of on-site sellers. Hog roast, locally-brewed ales, traditional ice-cream and much more will make for a mouth-watering selection of refreshments. Free parking is available adjacent to the site and the evening will culminate in a spectacular firework display.
We’re delighted to have secured Björn Again to headline Picnic in the Park this year
