Swanage Town Band

Welcome to our web page

We are a concert band that meets in Swanage Town Hall, Dorset every Wednesday (generally in school term time) from 7-8.30pm.
Our instrumental range includes : cornet, oboe, flute, clarinet, horn, saxophone, trombone, bass (brass & string) & percussion. Our repertoire ranges over show medleys, popular songs and marches.
We welcome any experienced woodwind or brass players. If you have an instrument in the cupboard gathering dust, do get it out, give it a clean and come along and have a go! (A phone call to our conductor will help ensure that we have music for you to play) See Swanage Band on Facebook

Drum kit

The Swanage Town Band has a packed programme of performances lined up this year, playing at local events as well as our regular bandstand performances. We are looking for a percussionist to join our friendly group of over 40 musicians who will be available to play with us throughout the summer months and hopefully beyond. We play a wide variety of music and rehearse weekly on Wednesday evenings in the Town Hall from 7 - 8.30pm. If you have some experience of playing and would like to join us - pick up your sticks (music and kit provided), come and try us out, and you will be given a very warm welcome. Please get in touch to find out more about where, what and when we play.

Calling all Clarinettists

Clarinet Icon

Although Swanage Town Band has grown to about 45 members over the last few years, the clarinet section needs some extra players. If you have a clarinet or used to play a clarinet and would like to play with a friendly and enthusiastic group of musicians of all ages and abilities, come along and give us a try. Some of the band have taken up their instruments fairly recently and there is no minimum standard required - just a willingness to have a go!

We play a wide variety of music at local events during the summer and rehearse every Wednesday evening in the Town Hall from 7- 8.30pm. If you want to meet us, hear what we play and join in, there is a chair, stand and music ready and waiting! We look forward to giving you a very warm welome.
