Rogerstone Community Band

Genre

Live Performance
Brass Band

Description

The Rogerstone Community Band was formed in February 2017. We are a non competing organisation and our members are from past and present who enjoy the art of playing a brass instrument, but not necessarily enjoy participating in contests anymore.

The aim of the band will be to perform in organised concerts throughout the year to support the infrastructure of the organisation and of course the local community of Rogerstone and beyond.

Our facilities, instruments and music library are of a good standard and are located at the Welfare Grounds in Rogerstone.

As we reform into this new organisation, we also invite players to join us who may have the wish to continue to contest with other Brass band organisations and it is in the interest of Rogerstone Community Band to respect these wishes and to try and ensure that any planned concerts do not interfere with any upcoming contests.

We welcome players of all ages and ability, regardless of the instrument you play.

Bedwellty House and Park Profile Pic

Description

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.
