Welcome to the website of Bletchington Silver Band!
To learn more about the Band,or to make contact with us (either as a prospective player or client), please see the links above.
New players of all levels are always welcome. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings at St Giles Church at 7.30pm for the Senior Band (6:30pm on Fridays for Training Band). Look here for details.
The Band is essentially self funded, raising money through donations, engagement fees and membership subscriptions. We are also fortunate enough to have attracted some sponsorship from local businesses, which is an enormous help with the costly business of National Contests. If you would like to help support the Band please see the 'Just Text Giving' details below.
Our next concert is on the 1st August, helping our friends at Marsh Gibbon Silver Band celebrate their 150 year anniversary. We are playing between 12:10 and 12:50. Bedford Concert Brass will play at 13:00, and then Bedford Concert and Bletchington come together to form a massed band at 13:50. This will be followed by Abbey Brass at 14:20, Marsh Gibbon Silver at 15:10 and the Foresters Brass 2000 at 16:00. The day rounds off with Abbey Brass, Marsh Gibbon Silver and Foresters Brass 2000 performing as a massed band at 16:50.
Breaking News! There will be a Pig Roast along with the Mini Ale Festival and Teas and cakes, so please come and support all the bands playing and wish Marsh Gibbon and very happy birthday!
