Replace the Todmorden Bandstand

Replace the Todmorden Bandstand

Commit to demolish and replace the existing dilapidated and vandalised bandstand that has been unused and unfit for purpose for over a decade. A magnet for anti social behaviour, vandalism and crime. Instead replace with a modern performance space fit for the 21st Century that the young and older people of the town can really use. Some Todmordians have a misplaced sense of nostalgia attached to the current building, let the next generation have a facility that is actually usable for the needs of modern events and activities.

Why is this important?

There is a misplaced “Save the Bandstand” movement which will rob the park and the younger generation of this town the opportunity to create a usable and functional outdoor space. The town has seen an influx of young artists and musicians over the last few years that has brought a renewed vitality to the town beyond the heritage, semi rural and market town offering of Todmorden. Give these people a space to engage, educate and entertain.
