Although a non-profit making organisation and with no professional players, the instrumental standards expected are high.


Our competitions are usually in the west country, in Bournemouth, Torquay and Weston-Super-Mare, but we have also competed in Wychavon and Harrogate in recent years.


The band has been working with Dave Hayward and Gareth Pritchard since 2007 to improve the general standard of the band. These partnerships have already been a resounding success with a couple of contesting prizes and a trip to the National Finals to our name. We look forward to building on these successes into the future.


In 2008 we went to the National Finals in Harrogate, and played in a prestigious concert at the Forum in Bath, sharing a stage with Foden’s Band and Bath Philharmonia.


In 2006 and 2011 the band recorded CDs containing a varied programme of marches, brass band classics, film music and pop songs. Please contact us to order your copy.


The band calendar includes many engagements each year being particularly busy during the summer months and around Christmas. The wide musical repertoire includes not only ‘popular’ pieces for easy listening but also complex compositions for contest work. Musically the band embraces well-loved foot-tapping marches and traditional classics through to music from film and stage, and other popular tunes.
