Further line up details have been announced for the AEG Live and The Royal Parks British Summer Time live performances which were announced in January.

From JLS to The Beach Boys, and The Saturdays to Paul Young the line-up of music performances will be staged alongside the Gruffalo, Horrible Histories and Brainiac for a day of the best music, comedy and entertainment for all ages. With further international acts and artists appearing across all four stages, Sunday 7th July – named A Day At The Park – will welcome the whole family to a great day out as part of the 10-day extravaganza organisers say.

I have always wanted to promote a show where you can take your kids and your parents. Junior can be enthralled with the Gruffalo and your daughter can scream at JLS while your parents dance around to The Beach Boys. Everyone’s happy!”
