Bandstand to be reopened by Crawley Millennium Concert Band

12 Jun 2018

The town’s Victorian bandstand will be reopened on Saturday (16 June) with a performance from the Crawley Millennium Concert Band.

 

The bandstand, which has been relocated to the Memorial Gardens, has been refurbished and restored to its former beauty by Leander Architecture, a specialist decorative blacksmith.

 

The work, which has been funded by Crawley Borough Council, West Sussex County Council and the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership, includes:

 

Councillor Chris Mullins, Cabinet Member for Wellbeing, said: “The restored bandstand looks wonderful in its new setting.

 

“I’m really looking forward to the opening event on Saturday; the Crawley Millennium Concert Band always give a fantastic show and it’s fitting that they will be giving the first performance.”

 

A spokesperson for Crawley Millennium Concert Band said: “We are delighted to be representing musicians of Crawley who will make use of the historic bandstand for years to come. Community music is a big part of the Crawley culture and our bandstand is the perfect place to share this musical legacy.”
