Basingstoke Concert Band is a traditional wind band which was formed in the 1970's.
Since then the band has come a long way and now has around 40 playing members under the leadership of Mark Atkins.
The Band performs various engagements throughout the year, including charity concerts, bandstand concerts, and our own very popular Spring and Christmas concerts.
We rehearse at Sherfield-on-Loddon Village Hall on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
As well as a bandstand you will find a boating lake, tree trail, trim trail, children’s play area and a paddling pool in Eastrop Park.
The park has been awarded the Green Flag Award for 2017 to 2018.
The River Loddon runs through the park, feeding into a balancing pond in the wildlife area. You can watch wildlife from the dipping platform: on, below and beside the water (caution is recommended in wet conditions). Many birds inhabit this area including a kingfisher which can be seen hunting along the river.
