The 125 year old bandstand pictured a few years ago before the start of restoration. This is costing £850,000, a lot of money, but I presume it includes the landscaping of the surrounding area which was also badly needed.
Local bands will play at the opening celebrations on July 24 between 8pm and 10pm. Patcham Silver Band, Brighton Youth Orchestra and Brighton indie-band Gloria Cycles will perform and the evening will end with the building being lit-up. Hooray!
