Important announcement! We regret to announce that the Berkshire British Legion Festival of Remembrance, due to take place on Saturday 4th November, has been cancelled by the event organisers.

We're naturally sad that this performance will no longer be going ahead but please feel free to come and join us at the Henley-on-Thames Service of Remembrance at 10:15 on Sunday 12th November instead.

Well, it may only be October in the real world but with our fabulous Autumn Concert out of the way, its definitely starting to all feel a bit festive in our music-planning department - in fact our music group met last week to consider all things Christmassy!

As a result, weve got some fantastic music lined up for our brilliant Christmas concerts on 17th December and, slightly embarassingly, weve all enjoyed our first mince pies of the year too. Keep your eyes peeled for more details coming soon...!

Have fun , you were great the other weekend!

Were a pretty sociable bunch here at WCB and since we like being involved with our local community, we recently thought that it would be a great idea to participate in the Woodley 10km race! Mysteriously, not that many of the band fancied being involved but 4 intrepid heroes representing the trumpet and clarinet sections took to the mean streets of Woodley today, finishing in extremely respectable times between 48 minutes and 1 hour and 2 minutes.

Its not yet quite clear whether the band will be repeating the experiment in novel socials next year...we do know, however that this is the only photo that were allowed to publish!

Well done all four of you! Hope we weren't too distracting for you.

β€˜Well done’ to the four of you! Would have liked to have joined you, but my sense of direction is shot away ever since being hit in the back of the head many years ago with a fumbled second cornet mute during a particularly lively brass band performance of the 1812 Overture at an annual beer festival!

I'll do it next year if Annie West does!! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

πŸ™‚ well done to you all x πŸ™‚

Great photo. Sad I wasn't there to run with you.

Well done to you both

Good work chaps πŸ‘ x

Well done.

Well done guys!

Well done Jo.

Good luck, play well and most importantly enjoy.πŸ‘

Were unbelievably excited about our first concert of 2017, A Night at the West End! Its going to be jam-packed full of incredible music and well-known tunes, including Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Jersey Boys and heaps more.

Were also thrilled to be able to announce that well be joined by a special guest vocalist wholl be singing a couple of numbers accompanied by the band which we know youll love! In fact, this photo is of our Cor Anglais player Gaenor playing the solo in the introduction to one of the songs - any guesses what it might be (band members need not apply, obviously...!)?
