TEN hours of music kicks off on Castle Green this Sunday(August 24) for Parrot in the Park, an event celebrating Taunton’s music scene this weekend.

Organised by The Apple & Parrot, and starting at 11am, the event will feature the UK’s number one Oasis and Blur tribute band among a raft of area musicians.

Working closely with Mel Amor, of the Inspiring Social Innovation Society, the new branch of local charity Stand Against Violence, the Apple & Parrot event is limited to just over 1,000 tickets.
