    A tuba player so our current one can go back onto clarinet! We also would like to find at least one more percussionist and some 2nd clarinet and full time 1st flutes to bolster our regular tea though we welcome everyone.! We carry out around 20 concerts a year in south cheshire and rehearse once a week in Nantwich on a wednesday evening from 7.15 til 9pm. Instruments are available in some areas to borrow or we can find some!
    Although officially we have no entry requirements we suggest being around grade 3 for initial entry but don't let that put you off, get in touch and we'll sort something out.

    Coming to Crewe or Stoke for Uni?

    Nantwich and District Band is a concert band based in south cheshire, close to MMU in both Crewe and Alsager, and not far from Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent. If you play a brass, wind or percussion instrument we'd love to hear from you and can make room anywhere as we don't have any limits on numbers.

    We play a good number of engagements each year and our standard is improving all the time. We have a very small stock of instruments that are available for loan and can help find one if needed.

    So if you fancy a go, get in touch with our MD Stewart either through a pm or email

    Students, Tuba and percussion

    Nantwich and District Band, a well established concert band in south chesire is seeking a tuba player and tuned/auxilary percussion players to complete its line-up. No registration is required so you can keep yourself free for any contests with brass bands.

    We have a variety of engagements throughout the year but are generally less busy than a brass band. With one rehearsal a week we might be that something different you are looking for....

    Students at Reaseheath College, Manchester Met (Crewe and Alsager) Uni, Staffordshire Uni and Keele Uni are all more than welcome and are not that far away.

    Drop a line to our MD Stewart either here or on
