We are an established, enthusiastic and very friendly brass band. We meet twice a week for rehearsals and perform a wide variety of music, from Bach to the Beatles, original works, jazz, pop, and arrangements of music from TV, films and the West End musicals.
After gaining second place in the West of England Championships 2nd Section in March 2015, the band was promoted to the 1st Section in 2016 (the band's greatest contesting achievement in its long history). We have also been West of England Champions of both the 3rd and 4th Sections, and enjoy attending local contests throughout the year.
We also have an enthusiastic and fun training band that meets every Tuesday.
We undertake a variety of engagements throughout the year, including indoor concerts, parks, bandstands, garden fetes, fundraising events, ceremonial days pub gardens and of course brass band contests. We always have a busy schedule, especially around Christmas where you can here us playing carols around the Gloucestershire area.
Once a year you can even hear us perform at the top of Wotton Hill in a local traditional ceremony to welcome the beginning of Spring.
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
