Burslem Bandstand

In stock

As part of an enhancement scheme to the local town park, Stoke-on-Trent City Council approached Broxap Dorothea for assistance in designing, manufacturing and installing a new replacement bandstand. 

This was an ideal commission for Broxap as the council were able to benefit from Broxap’s locality and diverse manufacturing capabilities whilst at the same time drawing upon the knowledge and expertise of the Dorothea division who specialise in heritage structures and architectural metalwork.

Options (£POA):

  • Bespoke size options
  • Submerged fixing
  • Internal lighting or solar lighting

The Burslem bandstand design was based on earlier historical images and sketches of the site which were developed to utilise modern manufacturing techniques in conjunction with both the council and the English Heritage. New patterns were designed and manufactured to produce castings of the main column supports and spandrel brackets, whilst the traditional timber roof construction was redeveloped as a sectional structural aluminium assembly to assist installation. The existing wall slab was retained and enhanced with new stone copings to compliment the perimeter balustrade.


  • 8 aluminium architectural cast columns
  • Aluminium fabricated roof structure
  • Corrosion resistant material
  • Roof void benefits from a closed soffit
  • Decorative columns and spandrels
  • Rainwater drained internally through columns

  • Guttering
