What's not to like about this spot? Parking is free, river running past, lovely planting. I'm not old enough to really appreciate brass bands or their music, but you cant deny this is a good way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon.

Along side the river wharfe, Wetherby bandstand features various Brass bands throughout the summer months. Plenty of FREE car parking spaces. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than listening to the band and enjoying an ice-cream.. Although there is plenty of benches its always worth bringing your own seat as it can get quite a gathering.

The summer bandstands in Wetherby begin in April and run through till September. Starting at 2:30 and going on till 4:30 are so popular its best to get there early to find a good spot. They have all the most amazing bands and talented players. The bandstand is so beautiful and was rebuilt by the group and is now one... More

Set alongside the river Wharfe, Wetherby bandstand is the venue for various brass bands to entertain locals and visitors over the summer season. Plenty of benches, picnic tables, Ice cream seller too. Huge free car park, surrounded by attractive flowering shrubs and trees. Dog friendly. Well worth a visit.

When the brass bands are playing in the summer season I always go to visit. There is beautiful scenery. Dog friendly. Plenty of room for everyone to sit and the whole day is a excellent relaxing time to spend with family. It is ok if you have older children but from my experience if you have younger children 12 or... More

You just can't beat sitting by the river at Wetherby next to the bandstand listening to a Brass Band....especially on a sunny sunday afternoon. That's what's on offer every sunday through summer (well not always sunny) and all for the price of a collection tin coming round. Been today and listened to Stannington Brass Band and they were very entertaining.... More
