Gorleston Bandstand performances

What could be more relaxing than spending a summer Sunday afternoon by a beautiful beach listening to the sounds of some of our region's finest musicians?

Gorleston Bandstand is the delightful venue for a series of musical performances taking place on most Sunday afternoons from 2-4pm in the summer months.

The programme is varied so there's something to suit all tastes and it's completely free to attend, so grab yourself a chair or sit on the lawns and enjoy some refreshments while you savour the music.

The 2019 summer performances, organised by Great Yarmouth Borough Council's Tourism Division in partnership with Harbour Radio, would not have been possible without the valuable sponsorship provided by the Rotary Club of Gorleston-on-Sea and support received from Gorleston Pavilion Theatre.
