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.


Many thanks to all who worked so hard to make the Fireworks Spectacular on Saturday, 4th November the success that it was –  the wonderful performers from Lil Z Dance Studio and Wye Circus Performers, Kie Cummings (the.task.in.hand- Instagram) for the photos, Niteforce Fireworks, Like Radio,The Beefy Boys and everyone  who came to enjoy the evening. So sorry to those that were disappointed when we sold out of tickets but demand was unprecedented this year.

The next event on Castle Green is the Christmas Fair on Sunday, 26th November from 10am to 4pm.  It’s the ideal time to pick up those extra special stocking fillers, cards and unusual gifts.  There will be reindeers, an Ice Queen, fun for the children, live seasonal music and wonderful hot and cold food from the FoCG Cafe, Emma’s Pigs & Old Granary Pierogi  … and don’t forget our famous mulled wine and cider

If you were unable to join in the World Cafe events and give us your ideas for the future use of the Pavilion and its setting, Castle Green, please take a little time to let us know what you think using this survey link 

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.
