New brilliant bandstands

Posted on March 3, 2015 at 4:45 PM

Wow!! the boys at Lost Art have done it again. New bandstand opens at St. Helen's Victoria Park as well as a new one going up in Wilton Lodge Park in Hawick. 

St Helens is a Walter MacFarlane model and replaces a bandstand that was always planned BUT never built. I am really pleased about the Hawick one as I wrote and submitted the Round 1 HLF bid way back in 2011 and they are now on site building it. This one was from the foundry of McDowall Steven and Co. Really delighted to see them back. Other new ones being replaced include one possibly in Alexandra Gardens in Windsor and Wardown Park in Luton. Bandstands are coming back.

You are obviously an expert on bandstands! Do you know who is building the new bandstand at Windsor? I think we need one in Marlow too (a few miles upriver) and it would be interesting to be able to contact the firm concerned. Thanks! Martin
