Wetherby Bandstand Series Success



The final concert of our 23 performance Summer Series took place on Sunday 24th Sep when Lofthouse 2000 Band from Wakefiled took to the stage.

As organisers of these free Sunday Concerts by the riverside we have seen a marked increase in audience attendance with 300 to 500 people coming along for the 2 hour concerts.

The bands make a collection on the day, its not well known however that an appearance fee of £150.00 is also paid by our Trust, a fund of £3,300.00 being required to engage the bands in the 2018 programme & to keep the quality of those attending.Business's may like to consider 'sponsoring' one or more of the concerts. Donations are very welcome to Secretary Mary Gray, 9 Coxwold Hill, Wetherby, LS22 7PX.

If you'd like to consider a stewarding roll for next year we'd love to hear from you too.

It's just 3 or 4 times during the summer, working in pairs for an hour before the concerts to set chairs out and put the speakers up.

Thanks for supporting the bands throughout the summer.

Rob Gray - Chairman 'Wetherby Riverside Bandstand Trust.'
