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!

If you’re not sure about jumping in to the concert band staight away – for instance if you are (or hope to be) a ‘returning player’ or haven’t played in a band before, then come along on a Wednesday night.   Brass, Wind and Fire – BWF for short – is our intermediate band and it’s meant for you!  BWF and the training band (for beginners) rehearse on Wednesday evenings, also at the Lansdown centre.
