Concert Band


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. There are no auditions - you just 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. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a member, please get in touch via our website.

Our origins date back 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 Wesley Carroll. To broaden our experience further, we have recently formed ensembles which rehearse weekly in rotation following our main rehearsal.

The band regularly perform around the Ashford area; we play at summer fetes, on our town bandstand and other local bandstands too, at celebratory and commemorative events and wherever else we are invited! We have established our own annual Christmas concert where we raise funds for local charities chosen by the band. If you wish to book us for an event, please get in touch via our website.

Rehearsals take place Thursday evenings from 7pm-8.30pm at the John Wesley Primary School, John Wesley School Road, Singleton, Ashford, Kent, TN23 5LW and we are very grateful to the Head and School Governors of the School for the use of their facilities. Membership fees are a modest £12 per month.
