Burton Concert Band is a Midlands-based wind band, comprised of experienced musicians from Burton-upon-Trent, Derby, and surrounding areas.
The band enjoys a busy performing schedule, with regular appearances at venues such as Chatsworth House, The National Memorial Arboretum and Birmingham Botanical Gardens, alongside concerts featuring guest soloists and private and community functions.
2017 was our 25th Anniversary and in June we held a Celebratory Concert in Repton. We have an exciting list of further concerts planned – see here for more details.
If you are interested in performing an eclectic mix of repertoire, from Baroque, Classical, Film and Big Band, contact us and join us on a Tuesday night at Willington Social Club, 7.30-9.30pm.
Being one of Birmingham’s best attractions, The Birmingham Botanical Gardens offers something for everyone, be it one of our four stunning glasshouses showing tropical rainforest to arid desert, beautiful gardens, playground, tearoom or our gift shop.
The Main Lawn is an amphitheatre, with its axis running roughly south-west from the Terrace to the Bandstand. This acts as a sun trap and the higher ground behind cuts off the cold northerly winds, so the Lawn is a popular spot for sunbathing and picnics in fine weather. The grass gets favoured treatment to keep the turf in the fine springy condition which makes it such a pleasure to walk on and a joy to behold from the Terrace.
The Bandstand is surrounded by colourful summer and winter bedding displays, in keeping with the period of its creation. On the far side of the Bandstand is the fountain, and the planting areas around the fountain have been enriched with shrubs for all seasons, including Peonies, Abelias, Camellias and Hydrangeas.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
