Bandstand on its way to a new home

Release date: 
Wednesday, 21 September, 2016

Work is underway to painstakingly take apart the bandstand in Burnley town centre and re-assemble it at its new home.

The bandstand is being moved from St James Street to Memorial Park, Padiham, where it will be used for concerts and other public events.

The move is part of the ongoing major refurbishment of the town centre. The work will also include the removal of the nearby “charity arch” building and the creation of a new “town square” area which could be used for public events in future.

Councillor Lian Pate, the council’s executive member for community services, said: “It’s good to see that the bandstand will be re-used in Padiham, in one of our most popular parks.

“We are in the middle of a major scheme to upgrade and modernise the town centre by laying new paving and installing new benches and lighting. The bandstand will fit in nicely in Memorial Park and will be used to host public events in more traditional surroundings.”

The town centre work is taking shape. The bottom of Manchester Road and The Mall are completed, and work in Curzon Street is coming to an end. From there contractors will work their way along St James Street. However, the work will come to a temporary halt in the run up to, and over, the busy Christmas period to minimize any disruption to shoppers and traders.
