Bath's iconic Victoria Park Bandstand thoughtfully refurbished

Bath's iconic Victoria Park Bandstand, a beloved Victorian Grade II listed structure nestled amidst the picturesque Victoria Park with breath-taking views of the world-famous Royal Crescent, is set to undergo a magnificent transformation.

A Romantic Icon Reimagined
The eagerly anticipated redecoration and refurbishment promises to rejuvenate this historical gem, bringing it back to its former glory and enchanting park-goers and visitors for generations to come. The Victoria Park Bandstand, with its elegant Victorian architecture and stunning parkland surroundings, has long been a symbol of Bath’s timeless charm. Its history is intertwined with the city’s cultural heritage, offering a backdrop for small gatherings, and cherished moments.

Restoration and Revitalisation
The upcoming restoration and refurbishment project will breathe new life into the Victoria Park Bandstand. The goal is to carefully preserve its historical significance while improving its functionality and visual appeal tastefully restoring original brickwork and half cupola roof, and preserving original wrought iron features using original colours.

The Victoria Park Bandstand has witnessed generations of Bath residents and visitors coming together to enjoy music, picnics, and moments of quiet reflection. The restoration and refurbishment project aims to ensure it continues to stand as a symbol of Bath’s enduring charm, welcoming both locals and tourists for years to come.

The £25,000 renovation is scheduled to commence on 9 October 2023 and is expected to be completed over a 4-week period, with careful consideration for minimising disruption to the park and its users during this period.

A Bright Future
NKS Contracts Manager for the project Brendan Turner, said “As the Victoria Park Bandstand is revitalised, it will undoubtedly become an even more cherished part of Bath’s cultural tapestry, and exemplify the city’s dedication to preserving its historic treasures alongside ourselves as Bath and NE Somerset Council’s construction framework partner.”
