From Aberdeen to the Isle of Wight, bandstands grace our parks, squares and seaside promenades. Illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this book charts the history of these exuberant wrought-iron structures, and examines how, after decades of neglect, many have been restored to their original glory – in the case of the one in Beckenham, South London, with the aid of former resident David Bowie. A gazetteer gives the location, date, manufacturer and condition of every bandstand in the country.
