The Band decided to contest this year at the South Molton Olde English Fayre where we came second and our principal cornet player Matt Martin won first place as the best soloist. We will also be taking part in the Exmouth Pavillion contest on Saturday the 3rd of September and the Torquay Contest in the English Riviera Centre on the 5th November. It has been a long time since we contested but now under the tutelage of our new musical director Graham Eaton we are back.
The band practices on Tuesday evenings at the Exeter Central Railway station, platform 1.
7.30 - 9.30pm
Come along and join us for a blow.
We generally have a tipple afterwards in the local pub.
If you contact our secretary before hand we can prepare a place for you to sit

LEARN TO PLAY
Want to take up playing or have children that would like to start learning,we can put you in touch with teachers for brass instruments who are CRB checked . We are hoping to start up our own learner band soon. So if you played years ago and want to get going again this will be the perfect place to start. If anyone is interested in joining or helping to get this going please get in touch.

We contest and play concerts and provide musical entertainment for fetes,official events,parks,gardens,fayres,weddings,golf clubs,churches and of course railway events.

You will hear us at Christmas carroling in the town centre, do come and say hello and find out more about us and the opportunities we can offer to get you started or going again. We are in the process of putting Brass Banding in Exeter back on the map! Come and be part of our future success.
