Swanage Town Band

We are a concert band that meets in Swanage Town Hall, Dorset every Wednesday (generally in school term time) from 7-8.30pm.

Our instrumental range includes : cornet, oboe, flute, clarinet, horn, saxophone, trombone, bass (brass & string) & percussion. Our repertoire ranges over show medleys, popular songs and marches.
We welcome any experienced woodwind or brass players. If you have an instrument in the cupboard gathering dust, do get it out, give it a clean and come along and have a go! (A phone call to our conductor will help ensure that we have music for you to play)
