"Save Our Bandstand" - Council Threat to Highbury Fields Bandstand

SIGN OUR PETITION HERE

Shortly before Christmas the Council announced that it planned to “slash” the grant it gives to the Highbury Fields Bandstand on Highbury Fields. This removal of funding could see the club close.  The club has provided affordable childcare to Highbury residents for decades and the closure will have a devastating effect on local families. 

This news followed a public meeting at the Town Hall before Christmas where local Labour and Green politicians were challenged about why the club staff and management were being “frozen” out of discussions about a possible replacement building for the One O’clock club and Café on Highbury Fields.

There were a number of unanswered questions.

  • What did local councillors know before this meeting re the possibility of the clubs funding being cut?
  • Was this the reason why the club were being frozen out of discussions about the future of the building?

These questions still need to be answered.

This 70% funding cut is a disgrace, join the campaign to stop Islington Council cutting the grant to the Highbury Fields Bandstand
