The bandstand on Lord Street is a well known landmark in Southport. A few years ago we staged some art exhibitions here, displaying our paintings around the bandstand. We sold a few paintings on the first morning but very little thereafter. It was very cold standing around in May and after a couple of years of poor sales we gave up.
It was only when I looked at the photo that I saw that the area behind the bandstand could better blend in with the shrubbery around. I will need to get the brushes out again.
