About us

Bringing music to Ashford since 2003

We are a local community band for adults with the aim to enjoy making music and raise valuable funds for local charities. We are a friendly group and new members are always welcome. You will need to be able to read music and have a level of proficiency on your instrument to enable you to get the most out of the music and the experience within the band. If you play a woodwind or brass instrument or percussion, why not come along to a rehearsal and see if it’s for you? We rehearse on Thursday evenings at The John Wesley School from 7.00pm. Please take a look around our website to find out more about us.
