Big Bandstand

Date:  June to September

After extensive refurbishment the bandstand moved back to its original home in Cassiobury park in September 2016.

Situated near the Cafe in the Park, every weekend during the  summer months, it plays host to a jam-packed programme of FREE live shows, playing everything from jazz to ukulele – and of course, lots of traditional brass bands for you to enjoy.  What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon!
