Aldbourne Band

About the Band - Aldbourne Band is a long established Brass Band based in Aldbourne near Marlborough - Wiltshire, originally formed in 1860 by the church organist. The Band's competing history goes back before the First World War and during the 1920's and 30's achieved great acclaim performing at the Crystal Palace in London. In 1981 the Band won the West of England Championships and competed at the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall as well as representing the area on BBC 2's "Best of Brass".

The Band presents 14 concerts and takes part in several contests each year, essential in maintaining very high musical standards. Many of the concerts are now long established events - for example our summer season of open air concerts in Aldbourne - Wiltshire. The "Pond Concerts" take place on the first Sunday of June, July, August and September in the village. ReadMore
