An African drumming workshop will take place on Saturday, August 8, between 1pm and 3pm. Children will be able to learn circus skills on August 15, between 1pm and 3pm, and traditional jazz music can be seen from 1pm until 2pm on August 22.
The final attraction of the month will see a four-piece classical ensemble perform on Saturday, August 29, between 1pm and 2pm.
The idea for the events was devised by David Freer, store manager at Boots, who set up a retailers' group more than a year ago. Mr Freer said: "The idea is that we all get together and add a little extra interest and value to our shoppers on special days throughout August. With the entertainment and the special offers and incentives being given by participating shops, we hope locals and visitors will spend more time in the town centre."
Town manager Tony Collins said: "This is about keeping the message strong to keep supporting our local shops.
