• Plan for the bandroom extension.

  • In 2011 the band took the decision to look at extending and renovating the current bandroom in Queens Street, Castletown which they have occupied for well over 60 years. The plan is to build a single storey extension on the side of the building, the old Temperance Hall, and then to renovate the inside, repairing and damp-proofing the walls, installing a false ceiling and central heating.

     

    To help raise funds to pay for this work the band have launched a Buy a Brick Campaign. Click on the link for more details.

     

    The pictures below show the progress that has been made so far.

Buy A Brick Campaign

The Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band invite you to help them build an extension to their Bandroom in Queen Street, Castletown by buying a brick (or bricks).  The new extension will provide a new entrance, washroom and instruments stores, freeing up much needed floor space in the existing building.  All necessary Planning approvals have been obtained, and it is anticipated that construction will begin soon.  

The Band, which is a charitable institution, was established in 1896 and has been based in the Mission Hall, Queen Street, Castletown for over sixty years.  It plays a significant role in the community, each year performing at over fifty engagements at venues and events all over the Island.

Band Musical Director, Mr Rodney Evans commented  - ‘This is a unique occasion in the history of the Band. Everyone who buys a brick(s) will receive a certificate, and their names will be placed in a special register, which will be retained as part of the history of the Band.  Through the Campaign, we hope to raise £10,000, which will help to decorate and equip the new extension, and provide funds to renovate the existing building.’

Bricks are priced at £10 each, and if you would like to purchase one (or more), you can obtain an application form from Castletown Commissioners Office, Castletown Library,  JAC Store, Arbory Street, The Vineyard or Maynrys in Malew Street.  Alternatively, you may download an application form from the Band website.

Application forms will also be available at all the Band’s engagements this year.
