Don't Let The Band Stand

As promised last week, in my post on Snowdrops, here is another photo from Pitville Park. Until I went walking round the park I never knew it had a bandstand and I was suprised at how nice it looked. Last year some areas of the park under went a makeover and I guess the bandstand got a lick of paint. The Borough Council are in the process of applying for a larger grant from the Lottery Heritage Commision so that a bigger revamp can take place in the Grade II listed park to help restore it to its former glory. I don't know if you'll agree with me, but I think the bandstand has the style of a Chinese Pagoda....fitting as today is the start of the Chinese New Year!

I find it more Venetian looking than Chinese. It's quite lovely, yes. :)

Have you bought some mandarins and moon cakes already?

I like how they've painted the top rails blue to cntrast the white

The top does remind me of a pagoda. The bandstand is beautiful. Maybe they'll have a concert there in the summer time.

I can see the resemblance. I had to use my imagination and picture it painted glossy red with flourishes of gold. I'm glad they chose white paint though. Wonderful park.

Looks like a fancy gazebo! Very pretty.

An ornate style bandstand. Much of ours seem to be less ornate and octagon shaped rather than round. A ahppy Chinese new Year!
