Slinfold Concert Band


Slinfold Concert Band is a community band featuring brass and woodwind instruments and percussion.  Founded in the late 1970's, the Band takes its name from the village of Slinfold, near Horsham in West Sussex, where it rehearses every week. 

The Band may be seen on bandstands, in concert venues and at charity fund-raising events across the South East of England.  We are a very busy band taking part in many engagements throughout the year.

See us at our next event :

Cranleigh Bonfire and Fireworks,
Stocklund Square, Cranleigh
Saturday 4th November, from 5.45pm

We also look forward to seeing you at our other bandstand and concert events this year -
please see Upcoming Events listing below

Book the band :

If you would like Slinfold Concert Band to play at your company function, charity event or private party, please contact our Engagements Secretary, Sheila Hillier, at

The Band has grown to around fifty members and encourages players of all ages to improve their musical skills and to enjoy making music together.  In December 2015 Slinfold Concert Band became a registered charity and is run by a committee of trustees.

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 so there is always plenty of interest for audiences and players alike.

Future Events 

Band calendar for 2023

Well, somebody must have ordered Autumn with a side dish of rain! 

All very different from two weeks ago when we were enjoying our rather wonderful annual band picnic 

But all is well: Strictly is back on the telly, the hedgerows are bursting with mellow fruitfulness and we have a list of concerts and events over the new few months that hopefully will entertain and delight.


So here they are:

·   Saturday November 4th Cranleigh Bonfire  5.45 – 6.30pm

·   Sunday November 12th Remembrance Service at St Peter’s Slinfold   11am

·   Saturday 25th November Southwater Christmas Festival. This will be the small band and timing is to be confirmed.

·   Saturday 2nd December concert at the Drill Hall Horsham  3 – 5pm

·   Sunday 17th December St Peter’s, Slinfold Carol Service. Probably at 5.45pm, but this is to be confirmed.

There may well be more – Watch this space!
