Live music in city parks this summer

Bandstands across the city are once again set to be lit up by the fantastic music of local brass, jazz and concert bands this summer.

Held as part of the Leeds International Concert Season’s Summer Bands in Leeds Parks series, the 2015 programme includes 104 concerts with over 45 bands performing in 26 parks.

No matter where you live in Leeds there will be a concert nearby this summer. So dig out your picnic rugs and sunhats for a perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

All of the concerts are free, but please note, there is an entry charge per person for Lotherton Hall.

Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council’s executive member for digital and creative technologies, culture and skills said:

"The Summer Bands in Leeds Parks series remains one of our most popular events, and this year’s programme incorporating 26 of our city’s parks promises to be one of the very best.

"A range of bands performing brass band favourites to jazz will be on offer, which as always will be a great day out for all the family."

Councillor Mark Dobson, Leeds City Council’s executive member for cleaner, safer and stronger communities said:

"We are very fortunate in Leeds to have some amazing parks right across Leeds, and we can’t wait to host the Summer Bands in our own green spaces as part of the Leeds Parks series."
