London Street may be closed on the Saturday of the Jubilee weekend, as the organisers of the Rockus music festival look to bring the event into the town centre on 2nd June.

Previously at Testbourne, the organisers of the popular festival, billed as ‘Bad Music in a nice Town’ are looking to close the road between the White Hart and the Red House, and are seeking support from local residents, for what sounds like an exciting idea.

The Rockus team say:

We plan to make use of the Parish Hall, Clacy’s forecourt and the White Hart/Red House car parks. Live music will form the focal point of the event with performance stages located in the White Hart car park and the Parish Hall. We are hoping to have children’s activities centred at the Red House. The event will run from 1pm until 11pm.

It is planned that the bus route and other traffic will be diverted through Lynch Hill Park.

The team believe the plans are achievable but they need local support.
