Salopian Brass is a well-established, friendly band based in Shrewsbury.
We have a busy and varied program including outdoor summer events in park bandstands and garden fetes as well as charity events, Church Services, Remembrance Day Parades and Carol Concerts. We also stage formal concerts, sometimes with other ensembles and choirs.
Our rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.00pm at Bayston Hill Methodist Church, Lansdowne Road, Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, SY3 0HZ, where we promise a warm welcome for players of all ages and standards. We have some excellent players in the band and some not quite so excellent but equally enthusiastic. We help and support each other, all are valued and have fun.
The Quarry is Shrewsbury's beautiful, 29-acre parkland, encircled by the majestic loop of the river Severn. The Quarry has been Shrewsbury's most important site for recreation since the 16th Century. It still provides the perfect place to relax, enjoy walks, picnic, fish along the banks of the River Severn, or just let off steam.
At the heart of the Quarry lies the Dingle, a floral masterpiece created by world renowned gardener Percy Thrower, who served as Parks Superintendent for 28 years. Its a delightful sunken garden landscaped with alpine borders, brilliant bedding plants, shrubbery and charming water features.
For two days each August The Quarry comes alive with more than 3 million blooms, as the park hosts Shrewsbury Flower Show. There is also show jumping, arena entertainment and top military bands, as well as a spectacular firework display.
