Borough Council to celebrate 50-year anniversary

Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council is celebrating its milestone 50-year anniversary this year by holding a series of special events, including a celebratory music festival.

The half century will also be celebrated with an exhibition at Atkins Gallery, as well as a young person conference and tree planting across the borough. Other events are being finalised and will be announced shortly.

A one-off dedicated ‘birthday celebration’ will commemorate the anniversary, taking place on Saturday 25 May at Hollycroft Park, 12 noon until 8pm.

The event will feature music, food and fun for the whole family. Current music bookings include Treacle Town, Velvet Thunder Steven Faulkner, plus music from Dorothy Goodman, Grays Drama Academy, NWSLC, Fosse 107 and lots more. Residents are encouraged to check the council website and social media channels for further updates.

The Local Government Act of 1972 came into force in April 1974, which saw creation of the authority that is now celebrating its half-century. 

Council Leader, Cllr Stuart Bray said: “We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with you all, and we have already added some exciting events to our annual events calendar for you to enjoy. Themed events will include a free outdoor music festival in Hollycroft Park, as well as an exhibition of nostalgic photos and memories from 1974 to today, a young person's conference, civic services and tree planting plus lots more.”

If you’ve also got a special 50th anniversary this year, then we would love for you to be part of our celebrations. Whether your business launched in 1974, you were born in the borough or got married in May 1974 please get in touch with us by emailing communications@hinckley-bosworth.gov.uk
