Victorian Bandstand & Bray Head, Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland.

Three bandstands were purchased by the Town Clerk of Bray Urban District Council at the Irish International Exhibition at Herbert Park, Ballsbridge, Dublin in 1907. They were to be placed on Bray esplanade. Only one of the three still survives today.
One of the smaller bandstands was placed opposite the railway crossing (at Quinsborough Road junction), another was placed where the present bandstand is now and the third opposite Lacy’s Hotel (The Esplanade Hotel). The Northern bandstand opposite to the railway crossing was known as the ‘Day Bandstand’, the existing bandstand was called the ‘Evening Bandstand’ and the small bandstand at Lacy’s was reserved for visiting variety shows.
The new Bray bandstands formally opened on July 18, 1908 before 4,000 people; 11th Hussars, Scotch and Lancashire Fusiliers Bands and several Dublin vocalists performed at the grand opening. The bandstand is still used by musicians to this day.
