A bandstand is a circular or semicircular structure set in a park, garden, pier, or indoor space, designed to accommodate musical bands performing concerts. A simple construction, it both creates an ornamental focal point and also serves acoustic requirements while providing shelter for the changeable weather, if outdoors.
Many bandstands in the United Kingdom originated in the Victorian era as the British brass band movement gained popularity. Smaller bandstands are often not much more than gazebos.

Hyde Park

Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in central London and one of the Royal Parks. Hyde Park is 142 hectares (350 acres) and is divided in two by the Serpentine.
