Brass Band Sundays Are Back

brass_band_sundaysFinally we seem to have some warm weather, just in time to herald the return of our popular Brass Band Sundays at Clarence Park Bandstand.

Gratefully funded by Wakefield Council’s Creative Partners Scheme, we’ve got a programme of six brass bands over the rest of the year. From 2pm-4pm on the dates below these are free concerts and you’re welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the music.

The exception is that on Sunday 2nd June it’s 3pm-5pm, as we’re pleased to announce the return of the Teddy Bear’s Picnic. This was a splendid event last year – bring your bear and enjoy a programme of childrens music from Thurcroft Welfare Band.

The bands are:

  • Sunday 28th April: The Phoenix Band
  • Sunday 26th May: Garforth Brass Band
  • Sunday 2nd June: Teddy Bear’s Picnic with Thurcroft Welfare Band
  • Sunday 9th June: Grimethorpe & District Band
  • Sunday 8th September: James Farrell Concert Band
  • Sunday 8th December: Crofton B Band

Hope to see you there!


Easter Sunday At The Bandstand: Chris Hanks

Fancy a bit of acoustic blues this Sunday? Disappointed we didn’t have an act on at The Bandstand? Trouble not, because you’re in luck!

Chris Hanks, blues guitarist will be performing at Clarence Park Bandstand on Easter Sunday from 2pm.

Chris is a familiar face at our KT PURE nights at The Hop (most recently performing with Tony Foster Band, replica handbags uk and The Wires) and is just the ticket for a relaxing Sunday. We’ve heard he might be performing alongside some other members of The Wires too…

Come join us! 2pm, Clarence Park Bandstand, Easter Sunday!
