We ask all customers attending our concerts to please bring their own seating where possible. Thank you.



Band Sponsors are always welcome, and we would like to sincerely thank one of our Members who is sponsoring concerts by the Shepherd Group Band, Vintage Rhythms and the York Concert Band during the 2023 season. His generous support is greatly 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. If our own car park is full, alternative free parking is available in the council car park on Robertson Close, across the Balk from the Gardens behind the old railway station. Owing to increased pressure upon the Gardens and cafe on these days, we now have a no coaches policy on band concert Sundays.
