Music in the Park

There is no better way to spend a summer’s afternoon than enjoying live music in a well lovely park with a historic bandstand such as the one located in Parsons’s Close Recreation Ground. Why not come join us, admission is FREE, just don’t forget to bring a chair.

Band concerts on a Sunday afternoon take place from June to September.

The Town Council has organised Sunday afternoon band concerts for many years which showcase brass and silver bands from around the region. The concerts now include jazz and popular music offering a diverse and entertaining programme to suit all tastes. This will take place every Sunday 3pm – 5pm.

Visitors have the opportunity to purchase refreshments throughout the concert from the newly opened kiosk located by the Splash ‘N’ Play park.

UPDATE MARCH 2020: in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, arrangements for this year’s concert programme will be confirmed nearer the time. Concerts may be postponed if necessary.
