Andover Events FamilyLife

Andover Rocks an event for the whole family to enjoy in Andover, Hampshire

I LOVE Andover Rocks that takes place in April every year in Andover.

Andover Rocks returns to Andover for its third year. Andover Rocks is a community organisation who fundraise, by holding a 3 day musical festival on the 5th – 7th of April.
We’ll be starting on Friday, finishing on Sunday with a whole load of music on Saturday and a new kids stream.
Festival goers have a choice of indoor and outdoor venues across Andover centre with music for all tastes and ages starting on Friday at 6th then from 10 am on Saturday and going late into the night and Sunday lunch will bring back Jazz to rest and relax to.
Andover Rocks will offers workshops, singers, bands,children’s musical theatre and musical poetry going on across several different venues in town including The White Hart, The Malthouse, The Time Ring, The Rockhouse, Andover Methodist Church and the Café Bridge.
Many musicians, performers and helpful people donate their time and music to make our 3 day festival a musical feast. In 2017 just over 200 performers, venues and friends volunteered for free. In 2018 there were more, and this one will be the biggest yet, with a Brilliant Variety Show to give you a taster of some of the acts coming to the weekend AND raise money for advertising and printing.
