The Malmesbury Concert Band comprises approximately 35 members playing woodwind, brass and percussion instruments and performs classical, popular and original wind band music appropriate to the event - in Bandstands in Municipal Parks; at Public Concerts (including our extremely successful, and popular, annual Musical Extravaganzas at the Town Hall); in providing musical support at Remembrance Day services at Malmesbury Abbey; as 'background' music at fêtes; and at similar events.
Its members are competent amateur musicians drawn from the local community and environs.
Our John Coles Park is the jewel in our crown – a beautiful green space in the heart of Chippenham regularly attracting 1,500 people on a sunny, summer weekend. The park offers a large area of open space and a circular walk through mature trees. It is maintained to its consistent high standard by our outside team.
The park is open from 8am to dusk spring and summer and from 8am to 4pm from early November to mid-January.
The Bandstand in John Coles Park will be hosting a selection of Sunday afternoon concerts which are free to attend. These popular concerts are a firm favourite in the diary and a super reason to make up a picnic and relax with some gentle toe tapping.
All concerts start at 3pm until 5pm
