Concert at Christchurch

We are holding a Gala Concert on Saturday 8th July 2017 in Christchurch, Old Town, at 16:00.

Guest starring Brunel Brass,  along with two very special soloists performing a variety of music. Ailsa Russell (Tenor Horn) and Paul Richards (Soprano) are from award winning UK Brass Bands Cory and Flowers respectively. Both soloists have won many awards over the last couple of years and are acclaimed as being at the top of their profession.

Cream teas, cake, tea and coffee will be served during the interval and there will also be a raffle.

We look forward to seeing you there with all proceeds going towards the continued development of young Brass players in the Swindon area.

Annual General Meeting – 26th September 2016

Our next AGM will be held on Saturday 26th November 2016 at 9.45am at St Andrews Church.

This is a great opportunity to hear what we’ve been doing this year, where the fundraising has been allocated/spent and our plans for next year and beyond.

It is important that we have a good representation of parents at the AGM so your ideas and attendance would be most welcome.

New committee members always welcome!
