Life Guards brass band building ban

Copenhagen politicians have said no to plans for a band practice building in Kgs. Have.

The Royal Life Guards marching band is going to have to find somewhere else to practice the broad range of music the band plays on festive royal and other occasions after Copenhagen’s politicians have decided not to allow them to build a practice hall in Kongens Have.

Protests from neighbours and organisations have now stopped plans for the 355 year-old marching band to build a practice and concert hall in the Rosenborg Parade Ground.

“We must be careful about permissions for buildings in the historical parts of Copenhagen. The many reactions have had an effect and I agree with the many Copenhageners who do not want a building in one of the city’s green open spaces,” says Environment and Technical Mayor Ayfer Baykal (SF).

Over 400 citizens, organisations and associations have objected to the plans. Over half of these have been from organisations such as The Danish Society for Nature Conservation, The Outdoor Council and the Association for the Beautification of the Capital.

The Royal Life Guards band has not had a permanent home to practice in since the Defence Working Environment Authority closed its previous home at the Life Guard Barracks at Rosenborg Castle.

The Authority determined that the hall was too small and could result in hearing impairment.

The 36-musician band was founded in 1658 and is the monarch’s official band. Apart from its many official functions, the band gives a wealth of public concerts and plays during official parades.

The band’s motto is Pro Rege et Grege - ‘For King and People’ – the latter of whom do not appear to appreciate plans for a new building at the site envisaged.
