The month of August saw a wide variety of different musicians take centre stage at The Square in Shrewsbury to help spread a bit of joy at this difficult time - and the scheme has proven to be so successful that the organisers have decided to continue it throughout September, as well.
According to Shrewsbury BID, performances will continue until September 20th on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with local businesses in the area saying that the project - organised by the Shrewsbury Recovery Taskforce - has been a roaring success.
Lezley Picton, Shropshire Council Cabinet member for culture, leisure, waste and communications, was quoted by the news source as saying: “Music and the arts have been a lifeline to many of us during what has been an incredibly difficult year. I’m pleased that the live music in the town centre has been so well received.
“We all want live music to be able to continue, so, not to sound like a broken record, please remain vigilant as Covid-19 is still very much with us.”
To help revitalise the township in the wake of the pandemic, a new strategy has now been launched to drive inward investment, create jobs and support local businesses.
Companies, organisations and residents are all being called on to give their views on the town’s strengths to help form the basis of how it should be promoted on a regional, national and international scale.
Executive director of Shrewsbury BID Seb Slater explained that the aim is to put together a compelling and consistent place story that everyone can unite behind when promoting the town and its organisations.
