Long Melford Silver Band is an amateur band with players ranging from 8 to over 80 years.

We have over 125 years of history!

The band performs regularly in Long Melford and surrounding areas and is available for bookings throughout the year.

We offer a wide range of options for your special events, such a Concerts, Summer Shows, Country Fairs, Christmas Concerts and Charity Events.

We provide an entertaining selection of music from the following:

  • Traditional Brass Band Music and Marches
  • A wide classical repertoire
  • Light Fete Music
  • A wide selection of Film and Musical scores
  • Other modern music

 


 

The band is self-supporting, thanks to the generosity of the villagers and other supporters who give moral and financial support to the Band at engagements and through donations.
 
All players pay an annual subscription that is decided at the Annual General Meeting and finally, fees from engagements of all types complete the fund raising as the means for maintaining instruments, uniforms, music, hire of the practice room, insurance and other essentials.

×Do you play a brass instrument? Would you like to learn to play one from scratch?   We have a training band that meets before main practice on a Wednesday. We welcome new and seasoned players alike.   CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
