Members of the committee behind the project to bring a traditional bandstand back to Haworth Central Park have visited the workshop where the structure is being constructed.

Members of the Haworth Bandstand committee, together with a representative from Bradford Council’s Parks & Leisure department, were invited to Andy Thornton’s works, in Elland, last week to see progress.

Committee member and Haworth resident Gill Hill said: “We were able to discuss some of the details necessary for the bandstand’s completion, such as confirming the colour, hanging basket points, electrical sockets and lighting.

“We are so proud that a Yorkshire company are building our new venue, and they confirmed that construction in the park will commence during the last week in March.

“The bandstand will be ready for use as soon as it is completed, but the official opening is to be at the beginning of this year’s Haworth Festival that starts on Saturday, June 21, with the bandstand celebration on Sunday, June 22.

“The committee is busy preparing a programme that will highlight the versatility of the new structure."
