Ross-on-Wye Bands in the Park

The 'Bands in the Park' series of weekly concerts is held at Ross-on-Wye Bandstand between May and August, featuring many brass bands from the Forest of Dean and South Wales.

The A. W. Parker (Drybrook) Band are currently charged by Ross Town Council with organising the programme of performers, having won the three-year contract for 2021-2023 and again for 2024-2026. The weekly concerts are always very well attended and the Bandstand, located beside the Wye in a wide open space, is an enjoyable place to perform and a firm favourite for many bands.
