FALMOUTH'S Parklive event is going virtual with the aim of bringing local music directly to the homes of people in Falmouth and around the world.

A fundraiser running alongside the event will be a chance for people to donate to The Women’s Centre Cornwall via the GoFundMe page Parklive Stands Against Violence. Parklive, which normally takes place in Kimberley Park once a month during the spring and summer, will provide the platform for Cornwall-based performers in what will instead become a unique monthly virtual event.

Simon Neild, producer of Parklive, said: “Music can help us keep sane at difficult times. There are so many talented performers out there doing such amazing work. We decided that the show must go on."

Ivor Richards, technical 'magician in chief' for Parklive, added: "We will stream Facebook performances on to our YouTube channel, all coordinated from my home – a technical challenge which I am happy to take on."

Parklive will be broadcast on Parklive Youtube Channel on Sunday, April 26, from 12pm to 6pm, featuring 3 Daft Monkeys, Sam Bradbury, Charlie Wingfield, Chris Hutchins, Danio, James Dixon, Val Baker, Charlie Louise, Minti Hindu, Helm DeVegas and Mog Jones.

The event is being sponsored by Falmouth Town Council, Amata at Falmouth University, Jubilee Wharf, Falmouth Tyres and A1 Appliances.

There will also be a link to the show on the website, www.parklive.rocks, and the Source FM Facebook page.

The Parklive team said it would like to thank all of the artists for giving their time and talent to the event.

Parklive is organised by Source FM 96.1, the community radio station for Falmouth and Penryn.
