Storm Cone

Storm Cone is a new immersive artwork by artist Laura Daly with music composed by Lucy Pankhurst. Located where the bandstand once stood in Peel Park, Salford, it reveals the lost bandstands in our parks and explores their forgotten histories.

Discover this fascinating installation and experience it in the park setting, through a free app and using headphones. It’s a journey through music and sound that considers our relationship with the past, while charting the fading away of brass bands during the interwar years (1918 – 1939). Augmented Reality allows you to witness the ‘skeleton’ of a traditional bandstand as they experience the music.
