Audience members will get to appreciate local talent with an eclectic musical programme comprising bands, groups, choirs and individual musicians.
Councillor David Perry (Labour), Harrow Council’s portfolio holder for community and cultural services, said: “I am delighted that Harrow will be part of the Bandstand Marathon.
“It’s a great way to showcase Harrow’s talent and celebrate our rich diversity, and it promises to be a great event. Supporting and promoting both the Olympics and the Paralympic Games is very important to us in Harrow.
“We want our residents to feel part of the celebrations, and the Bandstand Marathon is just another example of our commitment to this.
