Help save Royston Town Band’s bandroom

Royston Town Band fundraised for and built their own bandroom 10 years ago but it is now under threat due to a proposed increase in land rent from £500 to £7,385. Yes, you read that correctly nearly a fifteen-fold increase!

If the band lose that space there is a risk that they may no longer be able to continue. They are calling on Hertfordshire County Council to renew their lease for 40 years, and continue to grant them the 10% discounted rent for their bandroom site.

Royston Town Band has been an integral part of Royston’s cultural fabric for 160 years, providing entertainment at local events and fostering a sense of community among its members and audiences alike. By supporting this petition, you are not only helping preserve a vital piece of Royston’s heritage but also contributing towards maintaining a vibrant community life in Hertfordshire.

Please sign this petition urging Hertfordshire County Council to continue to grant Royston Town Band the 10% discounted rent it needs for its bandroom site and share the link below as widely as you can. Let’s keep music alive in Royston!
