Welcome to the web site of the Band of Avon Fire and Rescue Service, a concert wind band based in Bath. Our Director of Music is Alan Peacock.
We (normally) perform a very broad spectrum of music styles and genre, and are (usually) available throughout the year to perform concerts or provide music at engagements and events. Our primary location is Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas, but we have played as far away as Aix-en-Provence.
The restrictions due to Coronavirus have been particularly hard on bands such as ours, limiting opportunities to practice, rehearse, and of course to perform – even if audiences were able to attend. So for the moment, please take the content of this website as a list of ‘what we’d like to do’ rather than operational instructions!
We welcome new players at any time of the year, either to join the concert band, or, if less experienced, our intermediate band ‘Brass Wind and Fire’.
Right now, the band is looking to strengthen our brass line-up, and we are especially interested in hearing from anyone for the Trumpet and Cornet section.
If you are interested in joining us, or know of anyone who would like to, please email
If you’d like to have the band play at an event you are organising, it’s the same email address for initial enquiries –
