We were approached by a local interest group to explore how the existing Victorian town bandstand could be reimagined as a new venue for a variety of performances. The existing bandstand is located within a sunken, circular amphitheatre just above and behind the  seafront. All that now remains of the bandstand is the existing columns and low level balustrade, after the council demolished the original roof to remove asbestos. We prepared a range of options to create a new venue comprising an an enclosing wall with a variety of festive canopy structures referencing sails and the sea.
