Description

The Band of the Gloucestershire Constabulary was formed on March 1st 1990 and is comprised of serving and retired members of the regular Force, Specials, civilian staff and members of their families, together with a handful of musicians best described as "known to the police".

We are privileged to have performed at some of the county's most prestigious venues - Gloucester Cathedral and Highgrove House, Cheltenham Race Course, Gatcombe Park and Kingsholm, on ceremonial duty for St. George's Day and Remembrance Day, and at local events such as the Royal International Air Tattoo. Regular fixtures are Sunday afternoon "Bands in the Park" concerts throughout our beautiful county and beyond, and traditional Christmas Carols on our High Streets.

The Band is non-competing and is always open to new players and visitors - you don't have to be a police officer to join us! We practise in Cheltenham on a Thursday night

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.
