We are a friendly and enthusiastic brass band based in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. The main Band practices every Monday evening from 7.15pm in our bandroom in the centre of Nailsworth.
We are a community band, playing at a wide range of venues from summer parades to regional competitions.
The main Band is available for year-round bookings. We can also provide a reduced band or a 5 piece band to suit smaller functions.
We also have a training band which continues to supply us with talented new musicians and a “Thursday Band” (for all ages and abilities) which meets at the Bandroom every Thursday at 2:00pm. Everyone is welcome – just turn up with an instrument and play.
Stratford Park is a 56 acre park located just outside the centre of Stroud, with a great range of facilities to suit all kinds of recreation.
As well as the Bandstand, the park includes a leisure centre (including an outdoor pool and tennis courts), museum, play area, skate park, lawn bowling green, children's nursery, miniature railway, arboretum/woodland, lake, and free parking.
Stratford Park has a large and varied children's play area for children between 4-11 years. Set on the large grass area at the rear of the centre, the area has climbing frames, slides, swings, runways, activity frames and springers. The play area is complimented with seating for adults and children, which makes the area ideal for family picnics. The area is managed in accordance with the European play safety guidelines and is maintained by the on-site ground staff.
The park has one of the finest collection of mature trees in the area and rivals the nearby Westonbirt Arboretum.
In April 1935 the Stratford Park estate, including the grounds and mansion house was purchased by the then Stroud Urban District Council (one of the predecessors of Stroud District Council).
The bowling green and tennis courts were developed first, followed by the outdoor pool (lido) in 1937. The first head groundsman took up residence in the mansion house (now the Museum in the Park which opened in 2001).
In 1975 the Leisure Centre building was opened within the grounds of the park to provide a whole new range of leisure provisions for the people of Stroud.
