What’s On – Community & Music – Bourne Concert Band Of Woking
About The Bourne Concert Band Of Woking
The Bourne Concert Band of Woking is a friendly not-for-profit community band which rehearses in Addlestone every Tuesday and performs several concerts a year, including various events during the summer months.
The Band Welcomes New Members
New members are always welcome.
We currently have vacancies for drummer / percussion, bassoon and lower brass players.
There is no audition to join, just turn up one Tuesday evening and have a blow. See Rehearsals for further details.
The Band’s membership comprises people of all ages and from all walks of life. Some members have been with the band since its formation in 1984 but new players are joining all the time. Some have come along to the band having taken up their instrument again after a break of several years, and although arrive feeling rather “rusty” they soon get back into the swing of things!
The band also has an active social side with an annual dinner, ten-pin bowling nights, picnics, etc. Not forgetting the odd drink or two down the pub after rehearsals on a Tuesday!
Subscriptions cover the cost of our rehearsals, i.e. rental of hall plus conductor’s fee. We raise funds through our concerts to cover the cost of purchasing new music and other band equipment.
