The Stowmarket Concert Band, a Brass Band, was founded in 1962 and has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. There are two bands: the main band for more experienced players and the training band intended for learners, beginners or some players returning to an instrument. Both bands have a mix of adults and children performing together.
This site shows you some history of the Band, info about who the band are and how to join them, how to book them and, most importantly, where you can listen to them!
For day-to-day updates on the Band, please take a look at their Facebook page where you will find photos of events, links to news articles featuring the Band and other information we think you might find interesting. You don't have to have a Facebook account to view the page!
From 1962 to the present day, the band has seen many players pass through our ranks. Find out some of their history here. We would be very keen to hear from you if you have any pictures we may use!
Both the main band and training band play at a huge range of events, both to the public and to private audiences. See here where they are next playing, and put the date in your diary!
The Band are always happy to welcome new players - with both the main band and training band, we'll always make a place for everyone! Find out about joining us here.
The Band enjoyed a fantastic year in 2012, celebrating their 50th anniversary. You can read all about the anniversary concert here. It was a great day and great to see some returning faces.
Our summer/autumn/Christmas season is a busy one, and we are looking forward to proms, weddings, marches, concerts, bandstands, fayres, and services. Sorry to those bookings we have had to turn down. See our calendar here. Please see our news, photos and information on our Facebook.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director, Rob Pattison. Thank you to all our visiting MDs over the spring season, and to Richard Chapman for leading us in the interim.
