We have been told by many that we are a very good concert & also variety band. We would be more than happy to cater for your needs, from Weddings to Charity days.

Oakdale Silver Band can also see to all your musical needs and play all types of music. If you would like a certain set of music to be played, then by all means let us know when you're booking us, otherwise we would be more than happy to select our own music to fit the occasion.

There is a £1.50 fee a week for this, which helps the band buy the necessary items that it requires
Bedwellty House is a regency Villa situated in 26 acres of beautiful park land, we have a wonderful tearoom and we cater for all functions including weddings.
The present Bedwellty House was first built in 1822 by Samuel Homfray, who along with Richard Fothergill and Matthew Monkhouse owned the Tredegar Iron Company.
In 1826 Samuel Homfray Junior succeeded his father as shareholder and began a series of ambitious developments to the house and its surrounding 26 acre park, and by 1839 the house and park had its appearance much as we know it today.
Following the retirement of Samuel Homfray Jr in 1853, the iconic building became the residence of the managers of Tredegar Iron Works, the first of which was Richard Powell Davis, whose wife was responsible for the fundraising to build the cast iron town clock situated in the Circle in 1858.
As a result of the decline in the iron industry, the Tredegar Iron & Coal Company relinquished their tenancy of Bedwellty House in 1899, and the following year Lord Tredegar made a free gift of both the Park and House to the Council for it to be utilised as a public park. For the first time in its history, members of the public were able to visit the house and park whenever they wanted, inspiring many community groups to raise funds to develop additional features such as the bowls green, Long shelter and open air swimming pool, which was excavated by unemployed men during the 1930’s depression.
The house is open 9am - 5pm daily.
