Carols at the Bandstand

Brighton's historic seafront bandstand will be holding a carol concert on Saturday December 11 from 4pm to 5pm.

The Salvation Army Band will be playing on the ornate Victorian bandstand, which was restored to its former glory last year by Brighton & Hove City Council.

The free event promises to get the festive season underway in resounding style.

Since the restoration of the Grade II listed structure was completed it has become an increasingly popular venue for a variety of events, from weddings and civil partnerships to concerts, poetry readings and dance sessions. The above photo shows the Patcham Silver Band playing at the opening ceremony.

Council leader Mary Mears said:  "We restored the bandstand so we could have lovely community events like this. It should be a rather magical occasion and help inject some welcome tradition into the hubub of Christmas shopping."
