Frampton Silver Band

Genre

Brass Band

Description

Frampton on Severn Silver Band was established in 1977, making it one of the youngest bands in the county.

The senior band currently has 18 regular playing members. We also run successful Training and Starter Bands.

The groups all rehearse on Tuesday evenings at The Cadbury Hall, Frampton on Severn.

We play a variety of music from traditional marches and arrangements of classics, through to music from film, television and shows as well as popular modern music.

Our regular engagements through the year include traditional village fetes, garden parties, country shows and formal concerts as well as carol playing and festive Christmas concerts.

We have also been known to play at weddings, funerals, birthday parties and a variety of other events.

We are always delighted to welcome new players of whatever standard so, if you like the sound of what we do, why not come to one of our rehearsals?

Stroud Bandstand

Venue Type

Public Bandstand

Description

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.
