Wellington Silver Band is a friendly fourth section band steeped in history dating back to the 1800s. The band’s repertoire includes all types of brass band music from traditional to modern pieces. The band plays in concerts, churches, halls, schools, local fetes, seaside resorts, park bandstands, sports grounds and a host of other venues. We once played at a bikers’ convention! The band has a strong tradition of raising money for a variety of charities.
Wellington Silver Band is always keen to welcome new members of all ages and abilities. The band rehearses on Tuesday nights from 7.30pm to 10.00pm at our premises in Fore Street. We can give free tuition and the free loan of an instrument (dependant on availability).
Our website is currently under construction, but you can find details of our upcoming concerts here. For more information about the Silver Band, Training band or free youth music tuition, please get in touch via our Contact page.
We also have training band open to all ages. It has broad mix of ages and abilities giving new and less experienced players the opportunity to play in a group environment and gain valuable knowledge from senior band members who join in and mentor individuals.
