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.



The AGM of the Friends of Castle Green will be held on Thursday, 18th October 2018 at 7.00pm in The Pavilion on Castle Green.    Any member who wishes to stand for election to the Board of Directors should notify the FoCG Secretary, at 7 St Ethelbert Street, Hereford HR1 2NR in writing with the signatures of a proposer and a seconder, both of whom should also be members.   The AGM Agenda 2018 is here and the AGM FOCG Minutes 2017 is here. We’ll be telling you all about the results of our World Cafe Events consultations and the final report is Planning the Future – Awards for All.

If you can let us know if you plan to attend, it really helps with the catering as we provide a light supper.  Bring your own drinks.

The annual Fireworks Spectacular takes place on Saturday 3rd November at 7.30pm.  Details and prices are on the Diary of Events page or consult the Fireworks Q&A .  Then, even before we know it, the Christmas Fair will be taking place on Sunday 25th November.  Come and see the reindeer, so popular last year, and stock up on everything festive.

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.
