Crawley’s Victorian Bandstand Returning

Crawley’s Victorian bandstand is now a step closer to being restored and relocated to the Memorial Garden

The Borough Council has been working with specialist Leander Architecture to refurbish and restore the bandstand after it was moved from Queens Square to make way for the regeneration works in 2016.

The restoration work includes Minor repairs, new paintwork and a new feature for the apex of the roof.

Construction of the foundations for the bandstand to rest on will begin in December and be completed in January, ready for the installation of the bandstand, flooring and lighting.

Completion is expected in February.
