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 was held on Thursday, 18th October 2018 at 7.00pm in The Pavilion on Castle Green.   The current Board was re-elected with the addition of Heather Clyne, with specific responsibility for fundraising, taking forward funding bids for future development.   The featured presentation covered the results of our World Cafe Events consultations and the final report, Planning the Future – Awards for All.

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.
