About the Venue

Jubilee Park bandstand

In 1935, King George V and Queen Mary had been on the throne for 25 years and Lady Weigall (owner of Petwood) thought this was a wonderful occasion on which to open her new recreation grounds. Consequently, she asked her friend, Princess Marie Louise, a grand daughter of Queen Victoria and frequent visitor to the Spa, to perform the opening ceremony, marking the Jubilee of the monarchs.

After the war the Weigalls, with commitments elsewhere, decided to offer the park as a free gift to the village. The Council realised the generosity of the gift but had to consider the cost of the upkeep of the park and on 13th July, 1946, a sub committee was formed to estimate the annual liability. Over the next weeks there was considerable correspondence in the newspaper regarding costs and the possibility of the gift necessitating an increase in rates. On 10th August a referendum on the desirability of accepting the offer was held and on 7th September the result was published. It was 592 people in favour of acceptance and 92 against.
