‘The Friends of Ruskin Park have, since 1996, worked to ensure our park is well cared for and maintained, and has a planned and healthy future, preserving it for future generations ... The delightful Bandstand in the centre of the park is a simple wooden structure, less elaborate than the more ornate metal examples found in many other parks. After falling into disrepair, it was restored in 2006 with the help of the Friends and using capital regeneration funding from Lambeth Council. This allowed the Friends to hold the first of their popular annual summer fetes around the bandstand, which is also used for Easter and Christmas events and summer concerts.’
