Despite some rainy showers, a large crowd of local people and visitors enjoyed the afternoon entertainment which included well known local poet Ledger De La Bald, proving how other art forms will be able to use the facility.

The afternoon was introduced by James Young of the Friends of Central Park who outlined the history of the old bandstand and how it was lost to Haworth and the plans to make it a performing arts bandstand in the near future.

Parish Council Chairman Cllr John Huxley welcomed everyone and congratulated the Friends group for this major step forward to enhance Haworth Park

The afternoon performance presented the story so far to the village. It showed what will be possible once sufficient funds are raised to complete the project, with theatre, poetry and dance as well as music in the park.

The Friends of the Park would like to thank the performers; Nicki and Ric Carrol for providing the seating and Cllr Alan Watts for the public address system.

The whole project is a partnership between the Friends of the Park, Haworth Village Trust, the Parish Council and Bradford City Council.
