All concerts take place at Parbold Village Hall where Douglas Music Parbold presents an annual series of concerts featuring a number of world class musicians, also boasting an initimate venue where audiences can get thrillingly close to performers.

As attracting audiences for concerts becomes increasingly challenging for all venues, the society is proud to be keeping the same ticket prices as last year, enabling as wide an audience as possible to attend.

Tickets for each concert are £20 and just £5 for young people and students (a price which has remained constant for over 15 years). Car parking is also free.
