The Bandstand is situated off Wye Street, in the Caroline Symonds Gardens. The Mayor of Ross in 1987, Cllr David Fishpool, a keen musician and member of the Ross Town Band, had the original idea of providing a bandstand for the town, making it his Mayor's project.
However, although he was able to raise funds for the project, it never got any further until the Ross Lions took the project on some 15 years later. The Bandstand, or Outdoor Pursuits Building, as it was officially named, was finally opened in 2005 and handed over by the Ross Lions to the Town Council.
The Town Council arranges a series of free Sunday afternoon band concerts during the summer between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. Local charities are invited to apply to take a collection during the concert. To apply, contact the Town Clerk.
Other events are organised by different groups during the year. The space can be used for various kinds of concerts and displays, as a starting and finishing point for organised walks, for outdoor theatre or charity exhibitions and stalls. If your group would like to hold an event there, please read the letting conditions and return a complete a booking form to the Town Clerk.
