On a Sunday afternoon from 2 June to 25 August from 2pm until 4pm, you can enjoy listening to bands and musical groups at various locations within the district.

It is free to listen to the bands, but they may take a collection on the day to help with their expenses, so why not come along and have a lovely afternoon in beautiful surroundings.

The concerts take place at four locations in the district

  • Valley Gardens, Harrogate
  • Castle Grounds, Knaresborough
  • Spa Gardens, Ripon
  • Recreation Ground, Pateley Bridge

Each venue, be it in scenic Victorian gardens or the setting of an historic castle is well worth the trip in its own right.

All locations have a range of other activities for you to enjoy too, including outdoor games, family trails and play areas.

Band times are occasionally subject to change to accommodate other events or activities within the park.
