Brighton Bandstand
Brighton Bandstand, the Birdcage sitting on the city seafront, designed by Phillip Lockwood and completed in 1884 is designated as a Grade II Listed Building of Architectural importance.

Bandstands were hugely popular throughout Victorian Britain and Brighton & Hove originally boasted to having eight strewn across the two towns.

The Brighton Bandstand and its use as a performance venue lasted up until the mid sixties and bands still actually performed on it up to that point, but it was wastefully not utilised until the early part of the 21st Century.
