History of the Bandstand
Swanage Bandstand was manufactured by Walter Macfarlane & Co at the Saracen Foundry, Glasgow. It is made of cast iron and was installed in 1923 and officially opened on the 2nd August 1923. We have been donated an original programme for this event which you can see if you follow this link. This incredibly important bandstand is one of the few remaining MacFarlane '224' bandstands left in the country (Leamington Spa, Sevenoaks and Uxbridge being the others).
