There are no upcoming events.


Following the announcement of the lifting of lockdown from 19th July, we’re pleased to announce that our remaining band concerts for the season will not be ticketed for Members and that walk-ups on the day will once again be possible.

We’re asking everyone to bring their own seating to these concerts if possible.



Please note that owing to the dates for the relaxation of Covid-19 regulations outlined in the Road Map Out of Lockdown, there may be further unexpected changes to our programme should bands find themselves unable to rehearse or perform in the coming months. We apologise for the uncertainty this may cause but, unfortunately, these events are beyond our control.

We advise customers to please check this website or our Facebook page for any other changes to our programme in the near future. Thank you for your understanding.



We are very grateful to Pocklington Town Council for their sponsorship of concerts by the East Riding of Yorkshire Band and the Barton Community Band, and to one of our Members who has kindly sponsored concerts by the York Railway Institute Band, Vintage Rhythms and the Swinton and District Excelsior Band in memory of his late wife. Their kindness is very much appreciated.



We respectfully ask visitors coming to our band concerts to consider coming to the venue early in order to avoid parking problems caused by high volumes of traffic on band concert Sundays. Alternative parking is available in the free car park on Robertson Close, across the Balk from the Gardens behind the old railway station, and our staff are in the area to marshal vehicles at busy periods. Owing to increased pressure upon the Gardens and cafe on these days, we now have a no coaches policy on band concert Sundays.
