The Bandstand Restored

Patcham Silver Band led by James Benka-Coker performing during the opening ceremony of the restored bandstand. The restoration procedure which involved the removal of dozens of coats of paint and casting new iron parts, was meticulously researched. It has been finished in the original colours of brunswick green and brunswick cream with details picked out in gilt. The roof has been given a new copper cladding which will gradually weather to the familiar green.
