BRADFORD'S Lord Mayor will officially open Haworth Central Park's new bandstand on Sunday afternoon.

The structure will be officially launched by Councillor Michael Gibbons at a ceremony at 2.45pm.

This will be followed at 3pm by a programme of entertainment led by Haworth Brass Band.

The Friends of Haworth Park have previously spent a decade working to raise the money for the new bandstand.

A spokesman for the friends group said: "We've done away with the usual plinth, making the bandstand suitable for users of all abilities and allowing larger bands to perform without crowding.

"Further innovations are a wood strip floor and a cantilevered top which has no supporting poles at the front, allowing drama, dance and other forms of music to be performed.

"This makes it far more useful for the community, yet still fitting in with the original 1920s park design."
