WITH just three weeks left until this summer’s Clumber Concerts, organisers are gearing up to make it the biggest and best weekend yet.

Twelve top acts spread across three days will perform to thousands of music fans in the beautiful surroundings of Clumber Park.

Pop Party kick-start the weekend with energetic chart-topping acts on Friday 19th August.

Headliners N-Dubz bring their unique mix of pop, rap and R&B to the stage with crowd-pleasing hits like I Need You and We Dance On.

Boy band The Wanted are currently top of the UK singles chart with their fifth single Glad You Came.

Jay, Nathan, Siva, Max and Tom have their posters on every teenager’s wall.

Their first single All Time Low soared to number one exactly a year ago and has been on everyone’s lips ever since.

Up and coming rap star Chipmunk, girl band Parade and BRIT school rapper Aggro Santos will all stir up a storm on the Pop Party stage.

Tickets are £32.95 adult, £22 children under 14 and £90 for a family of two adults, two children.

Organiser Neil Butkeraitis said the final preparations were being put in place and he hopes this year will be bigger than ever.

“The three day event at Clumber Park will cater for all ages,” said Neil.

“We hope the local community will continue to support the event so we can grow the concerts over the next few years bringing top class acts to the area.”

The second concert on Saturday 20th August brings a blast from the past.

Flashback Festival will take pop fans back to the 80s when hairstyles were big and the hits were bigger.

Legendary 80s synth-poppers The Human League headline Saturday night supported by Level 42, Heaven 17, Nik Kershaw and Toyah.

The atmosphere is sure to be electric. Get out your picnic blankets and make a whole day of it.

And for those who want a real open air adventure, there is the chance to pitch a tent and camp over night. An extra £10 charge applies.

Adult tickets are £34.95, children under 14 pay £22.

The final night’s festivities will bring a touch of class to Clumber Park on Sunday 21st August.

Operatic singing sensation Katherine Jenkins will perform an amazing open-air set with the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Anthony Inglis.

Support comes from four girls whose beautiful four part harmonies transform classical, opera and pop tunes crafting a unique and entrancing sound.

Tickets for adults are £29.95, £22 for under 14s.
