Music venues abound in the clubs, pubs and halls in and around the town centre.

During the year, The Venue, located on Hill Street, hosts live music events often organised by Create Ross and you can also check out the event schedule at the local Phoenix Theatre which holds live music shows or performances throughout the year.

The King Charles II and The Eagle, both on Broad Street, are lively local pubs and regularly hold live music evenings with local bands.

For a perfect Sunday afternoon picnic, why not join scores of locals and visitors to listen to the free outdoor concert series, Bands In The Park, every Sunday during the summer season at the Bandstand, Wye Street. The 2022 season starts on Sunday 22 May and continues until Sunday 28 August with Proms in the Park taking place on Sunday 17 July. Details of Bands in the Park events can be found either on our Events page or on their Facebook page.
