A lovely sun trap to have a coffee and a jacket potato, watching people pass by. Music playing either on the stage or resident "busker" playing his guitar. Very seaside atmosphere.

We usually go to the bandstand on Sunday afternoons. It's a lovely place to sit and listen to the music and have a couple of beers from the little bar there and a snack from the excellent Mackari's. Great place to people watch too.

Sometimes they have stalls selling items, some times music live. It's nice to have a stop and drink and maybe a bit to eat.

Well worth seeing..this bandstand is a real landmark..and has a lot of history..the glory days of bands performing..I understand..they still have different performances..but there was nothing when we were there..nice little cafe.

Stopped by to listen to a wind band on a Sunday afternoon, lovely venue but if you visit the coffee shop beware it's very expensive... 2 milkshakes and 2 sundaes £22, lots of nice seating was set out and the acoustics were great

Hi, we only stopped for lunch there, maybe if you put central bandstand into a search engine you would get your answer.
