Rugby Area Talent Trust (RATT) was invited to entertain the crowds at the re-opening and naming of Rugby’s Brian Whistance Millennium Park on Sunday 18 September. The park, previously known simply as Millennium Green, has undergone major refurbishment and the community was invited along to see the result, enjoy an afternoon’s entertainment, and witness the Mayor of Rugby Cllr Mrs Sally Bragg as she performed the renaming.
RATT provided the stage, sound system and live music from three of the young talented singers the charity has been supporting over the last few months. Macey Quinn, Lois Arrow and Emily Goodwin were all accompanied by RATT’s Musical Director, Duncan Arrow on piano and guitar.
David Head from RATT said “We love the opportunity to get involved in Rugby’s community events. Live music always adds something special and once again the opportunity to perform in public really helps to develop our young talented singers and musicians. It was a beautiful afternoon and a good crowd too, a very good day for us all.”
As she opened the park the Mayor spoke about the value of community spaces and of the community volunteers who had made the refurbishment of the park possible.
