Description

We are a local community band for adults and our aim is to enjoy making music as well as raising money for charity.

We are a friendly group and new members are always welcome.
You will need to be able to read music and have a level of proficiency on your instrument to enable you to get the most out of the music and the experience within the band.

Our origins date back almost 20 years and we have been growing in size and reputation ever since. We now have around 35 members who meet every week to play a wide repertoire of music under the baton of our musical director Tony Thornton. To broaden our experience further, we have recently formed ensembles which rehearse weekly in rotation following our main rehearsal.

The band regularly performs around the Ashford area; we have played at fetes, bandstands, John Lewis’s and wherever we are invited! Over the last few years we have established our own annual Christmas concert where we raise funds for a local charity chosen by a band member.

Rehearsals take place Thursday evenings from 7pm-8.30pm at the John Wesley Primary School, Wesley School Road, Cuckoo Lane, Singleton, Ashford, Kent, TN23 5LW and we are very grateful to the Head and School Governors of John Wesley School for allowing us to practice each week at their lovely school. Membership fees are currently a modest £35 per term.

We are available for hire and if you wish to book us for an event, please get in touch
