Place: Matlock
Property / Street / Road: Bandstand, Hall Leys Park
Date: 22 June 1911
Description/Historical Information: Matlock celebrating the Coronation of King George V. The decoration of the Hall Leys was undertaken by the Decorating Committee, part of the Coronation Committee set up by Matlock Urban Council. The bandstand was decorated with red white and blue bunting, flags, shields and fairy lamps whilst the Broad Walk was decorated with Japanese lanterns and bunting. This large group, made up mostly of men, were probably listening to the Coronation Choir. It was reported (Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald 24 June 1911) that amongst the many attendees were members of the Council, the clergy, and friendly societies. Also see VLA5167 and VLA5216.
