Wotton Silver Band

Genre

Brass Band

Description

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.
