Southampton's Bandstand is situated in Palmerston Park, one of the beautiful central parks in the city.
Although just a few steps from the busy main shopping centre the parks offer cool shade, sunny seating areas and a peaceful tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Summer Events Programme
The Summer events programme runs from June - August with music on most Sunday afternoons between 2pm - 4pm.
