Extremely friendly village brass band, based in Blewbury. The band rehearses on Wednesday evenings and can be heard playing at local fetes, parks and community events throughout the year.

All levels are catered for (Beginner Band for complete beginners; Learner Band for players up to about Grade 4; Main Band for players from Grade 4/5 onwards). Players of all ages most welcome.

Very low membership costs (£40 per annum, or £20 if in fulltime education or over 60), and we have a wide range of instruments for rental (also £40 per annum, or £20 if in fulltime education or over 60), and 100% bursaries are available if these subs cannot be afforded - we never want (lack of) money to be a barrier to the enjoyment of playing a brass instrument with us.
