Rehearsal venues

As part of our Brass Roots history project we are putting together a timeline of places in Royston where the band has rehearsed.

We have good records for the current bandroom and the bandroom that used to stand behind the Manor House, but wondered if any of you have photos or information of where the band practiced before that?

Places we know of are… one of C Hinkins’ premises, a room above CT Cooper and Sons’ shop, the auctioneers at the top of fish hill, an estate agent at market hill, the old fire station, the priory park cafe.

Here is a great letter from the archive giving the band notice on Coopers’ rooms because we were being too rowdy after rehearsals!
