Bandstand Busking in Shoreditch

Despite the Baltic conditions last Sunday, the Victorian bandstand in Arnold Circus, E2 was surrounded by music lovers assembled for the last Bandstand Busking gig of the year.

Founded in 2008, Bandstand Busking hopes to breathe new life into London’s many under-used bandstands, by enticing established and up-and-coming bands to perform free mini gigs. Acts have included Guillemots, She Keeps Bees and Wild Beasts at venues ranging from Lincoln’s Inn Fields to Hampstead Heath.

Forest Fire and Lulu & The Lampshades rocked the bandstand on Sunday, making good use of the excellent acoustics. Those Victorians knew what they were doing.
