Music has always been a key part of Rowntree Park’s history. In the early days of the park, brass bands performed in the band stand – free for the community to enjoy. In 2018, The Friends of Rowntree Park once again started to bring music back.

Through the summer months, at weekends, a host of musicians perform in the park. All performances are free, though donations are welcomed. Most of the performances take place under the cafe and people are encouraged to bring a picnic and settle down for the afternoon’s entertainment.

Currently we don’t have a music coordinator volunteer but still hope to hold some events in 2022. We recommend checking Facebook for up to date information.

If you are interested in performing in Rowntree Park, then please get in touch via our contact page. Or may be you are interested in helping us get some live music organised!

If you’d like to hold an event in the amphitheatre area using electricity there is a £137 cost to CYC for getting this up and running. In addition there are other terms and conditions with regard to volume and notifying neighbours. It is possible to host events at the amphitheatre BUT please contact us for further details.
