Welcome to Slinfold Concert Band
Slinfold Concert Band takes its name from the West Sussex village where it was formed in 1979. Initially it was a brass band with just five players but over the years the band grew, woodwind instruments were added and so the name was changed to Slinfold Concert Band. There are now around 40 members who travel from miles around to rehearsals in Slinfold (near Horsham) and engagements all across the South East of England.
The Band was founded on the principle of welcoming and encouraging players of all ages to improve their musical skills and to enjoy making music together. Now over 35 years later that tradition is still maintained. Slinfold Concert Band is a community band, run as a not-for-profit organisation.
The music in the Band's repertoire covers a wide variety of styles and genres including light classical, Big Band, music from film and stage and plenty more besides! The pieces are a diverse range of old and new, lively and relaxing, serious and light-hearted. This versatility means that the Band is in demand at different venues and events throughout the year.
Slinfold Concert Band may be seen on bandstands, in concert venues, private functions and at charity fund-raising events.
