Ilkley Bandstand

All about the Bandstand on The Grove

The Bandstand is located in the centre of Ilkley. It is on the southern side of The Grove which is a picturesque tree lined street of elegant shops and is directly opposite Betty's famous tearooms. The Bandstand is surrounded by well kept gardens with permanent seating for those wishing to enjoy the performers

  It is available for use by musical groups of all kinds or any other suitable organisations.


The Bandstand was conceived as a millenium project by the Rotary Clubs of Ilkley Wharfedale & Ilkley and completed in 2001. The site was generously donated by the Ilkley Abbeyfield Society and both organisations, together with Ilkley Parish Council retain a keen interest as Trustees. An active management committee of volunteers run the bandstand and gardens on a day to day basis. They aim to provide appropriate entertainment for residents and visitors alike.
