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 perform a very broad spectrum of music styles and genre, and are 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.  

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’ – but the intermediate band will not be resuming until we can return to our usual premises in Lansdown.  We hope this will happen in the near future!

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 –

For further discussions about existing bookings, please email

Scroll down the page for more information, or use the menu bar at the top.

Saltford Concert 2023

Joining the band

If you’re a musician looking for a Band to join in the Bristol, Bath & surrounding areas, welcome – you don’t have to be a firefighter – any musician can apply to join us!   We have bands to suit all musicians, from absolute beginners and returners to playing (for example, people who learned to play an instrument at school but have never played since) and accomplished players

The concert wind band rehearses on Monday evenings at 7.30pm at the Management Development centre of the Avon Fire & Rescue Service, which is to the North of Bath, just beyond the racecourse.  You do need a car to get there, unfortunately, but the good news is that there’s plenty of parking, which is very rare in the Bath area!
