Description

Amington Band have been in existence for nearly 100 years, rehearsing every week, entertaining the people of Tamworth and taking part in contests. As a band we take pride in this, and we're committed to keep the legacy going, the entertainment flowing and brass players blowing. Over the years the band has been placed in all sections; from fourth to the championship section. Right now we're a 3rd section band but we aim high and constantly try to improve. You can read more about our illustrious history on our history page!

Our band is made up of around 25 brass players, about 3 percussionists and 1 Musical Director - Alan Gifford. We have a large age range, our youngest player is currently 16 and our oldest is no spring chicken! But nevertheless we're all equal. The band has a written constitution which we follow to keep everyone in check and this is backed by the band committee.

The committee has both playing and non playing members and is chaired by Marie Turner. They meet once a month to discuss band matters, plan upcoming events and to democratically decide the best way for the band to move forward in the future.

The whole band enjoys playing at a wide range of events throughout the year, from concerts in halls to Christmas carols outdoors, garden fetes, festivals and even weddings!

We also now offer our smaller, Amington 10 Piece Brass Ensemble; catering for occasions where a full band might not be necessary or space is limited. In this we provide a chamber music experience not only for the listeners but also as additional musical training for our players, who learn extra skills by playing without a conductor.

We rehearse on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8.00pm until 10.00pm in our purpose built Band Room on Sharpe Street in Amington. We welcome all players to come and play with us, whether you want to join us or just want to come and have a blow!

Description

We are the local Church of England family in Amington.

Our motto is ‘following Jesus together‘, which is what we seek to do as a church family. We believe Jesus should be at the heart of everything we do; we believe that Christians are called to be whole-hearted disciples, which means learning from and following Jesus; we believe that we can’t do any of that alone, but need to travel together.

Our mission is to share the good news about Jesus, serve our local community, and support one another on the journey. We welcome everyone and anyone (though if you all come at once, we would run out of chairs!).
