Celebration, Education, Recreation: A Park for People


We are an active community group committed to respecting the heritage of Castle Green, making more use of the park for today’s community and improving and protecting it for future generations.

Volunteer Gardening Day on Sunday 7th August
10.30am to 3pm at the latest with lunch provided by the Friends.
Meet at the Victoria Bridge by the flower beds.

We had great fun on Historical Hereford Day.  Sunshine, delicious food, wandering minstrels, a Shakespearean puppet theatre, hawks circling the sky to the horror of the seagulls, archery, the Queen’s Executioner and a jester with his tickling feather causing many a nervous giggle.   The Christmas Fair on Sunday, 27th November will have a lot to live up to!

Other dates on Castle Green in 2016 are listed in the Diary of Events on the left.  The Pavilion is open for business for meetings & events, there is a fully equipped catering kitchen and the River Room and Artists’ Room directly overlook the River Wye. There are regular yoga and tai chi’ classes plus a lively youth music programme with the Music Pool’s ‘Livewire’ programme.

IT Support: The Learning Box@Brierley Court (just off Turner Street) is a new community resource centre, within walking distance of Castle Green.  IT beginners’ courses, lots of computers to drop-in and practise on and very helpful personnel.
