TALKS are underway in the hope of bringing another star show to Carlisle’s Bitts Park.

The city council, which owns the venue, is in talks about the potential of another concert there next year.

Details have emerged after Jess Glynne headlined a great night of music there on Saturday night, with her end of summer party turning the venue into an open-air auditorium.

Her concert followed a string of other packed concerts in recent years, from Little Mix to Bryan Adams and Sir Tom Jones.

Glynne’s rescheduled show - following on from a postponement last month as she grappled with vocal problems - fuelled hope from concert-goers that another summer of live music could follow.

Promoters were also pleased.

The council has confirmed it is looking into plans for next year.

A spokeswoman said: “The Jess Glynne concert was another successful event for Carlisle and, although we don’t have any confirmed events for next year, we are in discussions with several promoters for different events at Bitts Park.”

Hosting large scale events can have a major impact on the area such as bars, restaurants and other businesses.

After the first Jess Glynne date was postponed, fans were able to swap their single tickets for two.

Claire Martin, 34, of Penrith said this was perfect, adding: “We got our tickets for the first date and it should have just been work colleagues but when we were able to get the free one, we all brought a friend.

“It’s an amazing atmosphere in the park and we’re just looking forward to her (Jess Glynne) coming on stage.”

Also, part of the group, Emma Felton, 34, she said: “It’s brilliant to be here. We’re having a really good time we all have matching tops on just to show our support and so we can find each other.”

Rachael Miller, 34, from Wigton said: “ I think it’s brilliant, especially for the kids. My little one has been looking forward to coming for ages.

“It’s nice for things like this to come to Carlisle because it doesn’t happen all that often.”
