The Victorian Bandstand was constructed in 1864 to a design by the Coalbrookdale Company, Ironbridge and is believed to be the oldest bandstand in the country still in regular use. The new ‘orchestra’, as bandstands were referred to then, was used for the first time on 7 September 1864 during a horticultural fête held at Montpellier.
