Three big concerts were part of the Whitehaven festival 2011.

The first was the Here and Now nostalgia concert featuring Boy George, T'Pau and Bananarama

Boy George

Also the RAF band performed after the veterans parade a series of Glen Miller big band numbers.

Throughout the weekend plenty of local bands performed on two other stages and altogether there was music to satisfy all tastes.

Jazz trio

Performing in the acoustic tent on the Bulwark with some old Jazz standards was this local jazz band.

Also in the jazz idiom these musicians from the RAF band did a great job of proving they weren't limited to a regimented repetoir.

On the CFM stage by the hub The Might Boof productions put on a series of local artists including many of their established artists plus a few new-comers.
