February Update 2024

The band performed at the first “Love Thornbury” event in  September 2023 and also at the annual Royal British Legion Remembrance service at Tytherington in November 2023.

We continued to work with other local brass bands throughout the year in helping each other out with deps for various events when needed and are grateful to other local bands for helping us in 2023.

In December we did a variety of Christmas carolling events at the Mall Cribbs Causeway and Thornbury including the Swan, Tesco, Farmers Market and are grateful for the organisations and public who supported us.

The band is actively trying to recruit more players to join us in 2024 and to schedule events for 2024. We have placed adverts in the local press including the Thornbury Magazine and  Thornbury Voice and posters have been placed in organisations around Thornbury. Also we have been active on social media.

If you are interested contact us and come along for a blow. We look forward to seeing you soon.

August update

The band has continued to perform at various events this year including:

St George’s Day at Yate Heritage Centre

May Day Fair at Tytherington

Beech House Care Home Summer Fair


We are looking forward to performing at the ” Love Thornbury” event in September and will be preparing for The Tytherington Remembrance Day service.

The band is beginning to plan a number of Christmas carolling engagements in and around the Thornbury area.
