HEREFORD city centre could soon become known for its live performances on Saturdays as part of a new scheme.

City Life Presents is the new live performance initiative from Hereford City Life that will see music, theatre, crafts and more taking place in the city centre.

Working with local acts, groups and well-known entertainment providers, the Hereford City Life team will be hosting pop-up performances twice a month in the city centre.

The first City Life Presents event will be held in the centre of High Town this Saturday (May 14), between 10.30am and 3pm, with performances from Band for Hire and Anya Pailthorpe.


“The introduction of City Life Presents will provide a much-needed boost to the city centre on Saturdays,” said Ben Turner, owner of Hereford Music Shop and board member of Hereford BID.

“It is great that we have the opportunity to work with local musicians to brighten weekends in Hereford.”

Further City Life Presents performances are scheduled for May 28, June 11 and 25 June, with acts and more dates being announced in the coming weeks.

Anya Pailthorpe is a local singer songwriter who has blended notes from folk, pop and jazz to create her own unique style.

Band For Hire are an up-and-coming cover band local to Hereford; think Arcade Fire and Kings of Leon.
