Forthcoming Events

Just to say that the Band is not reheasing or performing at present. We are missing meeting up and also missing all our great supporters. The band hopes to resume as soon as it is safe to do so.

Vacancies: We welcome all new players. We have vacancies especially for  2nd/3rd cornet players and a soprano cornet player at present.

October 2020 Events

2019: 2 new ventures!



Indoor Music Games:

Take a collection of several brass bands, two big bands and some small ensembles, all entertaining in a large sports hall at Filton College, Bristol, and you have the Indoor Music Games!

This was a new format for the band, who enjoyed performing a selection of our favourite pieces.

We were then treated to a fascinating show of choreographed marching and movement from Cadence Performing Arts, admirably using the whole floor area. We felt remaining seated was safer for our band!

South Glos Show:

Our inaugural attendance at this event on the first Saturday in August was welcomed by warmth and sunshine. The Show is very busy with lots of stalls and events. A buggy was needed to transport our kit to the dainty temporary bandstand provided by the organisers. The players did somewhat overspill the bandstand but nevertheless enjoyed playing 4 sets of a very varied programme including pop, swing, musicals, and film music as well as traditional marches!
