Paul Rabbitts, a leading UK expert on bandstands, is speaking in Leamington this month about the history of bandstands; their importance; positions in parks and gardens; their decline after World War Two and now their welcome renaissance. He has written two books on the subject, both of which mention the bandstand in the Pump Room Gardens.
Paul freely admits to being a bandstand geek! You can find out more about his enthusiasm for the subject on his website.
