Brighton Bandstand

Brighton and Hove City Council refurbished the Western Bandstand with funding from the National Lottery.

The structure had fallen into disrepair but is now a beautifully restored example of Victorian design and engineering.

The bandstand sits on a podium building which now houses the Bandstand Cafe with an outdoor seating area.

The bandstand structure itself is now a venue for civic ceremonies, weddings and performances with seating areas to either side along the promenade.

We were commissioned after a competitive interview process to develop a lighting scheme that was integrated into the refurbishments but that had a minimal daytime impact and a minimal physical impact on the listed structure.

The scheme we developed involved 76 bespoke luminaires integrated and arranged so that there is minimal visibility of the fittings both by day and after dark.

This was an enjoyable project to be involved in as we were able to develop a sophisticated solution for our clients, who from the outset were passionate about the opportunity to a truly impressive refurbishment project.
