The Bandstand

Free entertainment for everyone in the lower gardens Bournemouth.

The Bandstand is where it all started, Bourne Free’s first ever event was held in the Lower Gardens in 2004. Since then we have continued to provide a fun, exciting packed afternoon filling with entertainment, stalls and activities for everyone. While The Triangle on this day is an adult only event this entertainment is for absolutely everyone.

So, why not bring a picnic and sit in the sun enjoying plenty of family-friendly entertainment all afternoon?

The Bandstand is a FREE event for everyone, no wristbands or tickets are required for this event.

Every year many local and national organisations hold information stalls in the Lower Gardens promoting equality and diversity and their support of it. Come on down and say hello.
