May 2020 - we are still here and very much committed to banding once everything has finaly gone back to normal ! Our committee and MD are still available to contact via the website if you have any enquiries or wish to join the band. We are currently meeting online once a week to play mini concerts and socialise. Many of our many regular summer commitments have already been rebooked for 2021 and we are all looking forward to getting back together and making music. Stay safe everyone and keep the faith ! WCB x
July Update - Together with other local bands we have been enjoying online meetups, quizzes and have completed two virtual pieces together with two more in the pipeline. We are also making plans for a special piece to be composed to mark this difficult time. We have also has several online concerts with people contributing performances for us all to watch.

More importantly we are now looking to the future and planning how we may be able to rehearse and also how raise our profile in the community via concerts and performances once we are able to do so.

Looking forward to seeing members of the brass band community old and new enjoying brass band music again one day.

September update - we are still meeting online regularly and holding virtual concerts to keep us playing and also holding online social events to keep us connected.

The summer season is now over (though we have events booked in for next year, fingers crossed) and we are looking to carolling at Xmas hopefully to get back to playing together and perhaps even cheer up the local community a little!.

When we return to full banding we are still looking for kit percussion, bflat bass and a front row cornet (due to university).

We welcome all players however and now is the ideal time to think about returning to banding if you have been out of it a while. We are all getting rusty and will need plenty of gentle practise before performing again ...so we will all be in the same boat! Stay safe everyone and keep the faith!
November Update - we are still enjoying a variety of projects over Zoom including producing virtual carols for use in the Worcester Christmas Lights Switch-On. Looking forward to actual in-person carolling later in December also hopefully !

When we return to banding full time next year sometime we will be offering a FREE YEAR from March with NO SUBS to pay as we haven't been able to rehearse. So if you are thinking of a return to banding or need a new banding scene then its an ideal time to try us out! We have specific vacancies available (see previous post) but always have room for extra players. Please see our website for contact details. Merry Christmas and here's to a better New Year for banding !
Happy New Year to all. I am pleased to say that WCB were out and about carolling over December and raised several hundred pounds for Worcester Foodbank. It was lovely to be out playing again.

We are now making plans for our return to rehearsing, although dates are of course not certain it’s obviously a good idea to start planning now!

We are in need particularly of solo cornets due to university leaving plus basses and percussion. We can find space for all players though if you wish to join us. Contact us via our website.
Happy March - update on WCB. We are looking to resume rehearsals ASAP and fingers crossed in May! We have a variety of bandstand concerts and village fete type events booked in for this year and we really want to be able to do them ! We are all looking forward to returning so much. All new and returning players welcome to join we are a friendly supportive and encouraging non-contesting band.

Please use the contact details on our website to enquire.
Well finally some good news - rehearsals restart from Tuesday 18th May at Nunnery Wood High School from 7:30 pm. We will be rehearsing according to government social distancing guidelines until they are relaxed also and we are fully risk assessed using BBE guidance.
We are all really looking forward to playing again ! We have gigs booked for the summer so need to get practising!
Now is a good time to pick up the instrument again or return to banding. We are in need of several key players but welcome any new members. Front row cornets especially welcome due to university etc.
