A free Christmas carol concert is to be held by the Salvation Army Band at the Brighton Bandstand on Saturday at 4pm.

Since the restoration of the Grade II listed structure was completed it has become an increasingly popular venue for a variety of events, from weddings and civil partnerships to concerts, poetry readings and dance sessions.

Council leader Mary Mears said: “We restored the bandstand so we could have lovely community events like this. It should be a rather magical occasion and help inject some welcome tradition into the hubub of Christmas shopping.”

Another free Christmas carol concert will be held at the Pepper Pot on Queen’s Park Road on Friday, 17 December from 6pm.

As well as carols from St Luke’s Choir at 7.30pm, the event also gives people the chance to take part in a virtual tour of the tower from the ground floor.

An exhibition of the folly’s history will also be on display at St Luke’s Church Hall, where hot drinks will be served.  All funds raised will go to help the preservation of the Pepper Pot.
