Our Assistant Director of Music Owen is not known for being quiet and understated so when we asked him if he fancied making a video for our 12 Virtual Days of Christmas last year, we weren't quite sure what we'd get. What we certainly didn't expect was 4 of him in one room at the same time (in 4 different festive hats) playing our most-requested Christmas song! We're still not *quite* sure we know he did this...!πŸ¦ŒπŸ›·πŸ”” ... See MoreSee Less

Back in November last year, as it became clear that most forms of Christmas celebration would have to take place virtually, we scrambled a crack team of brass players and put no less than four different carols together in record time to help Woodley Town Council present their first ever online Christmas Lights Switch-On! Here are Gregor, John, Phil, Jon, Mark and Len playing Winter Wonderland...β„οΈπŸŽΌ ... See MoreSee Less

Around this time last year, with much of the country in lockdown, WCB decided to brighten everyone's Christmases with some virtual performances, recordd in our homes. We thought it would be fun to re-share a few of our favourites between now and the end of the year, so without furher ado, here's one of our whole-band epics: Pogues' Christmas classic Fairytale of New York!🎁 ...

From all of us at WCB - a very Merry Christmas! We hope you have a marvellous day with all your favourite Christmas music!πŸŽ„πŸŽ΅

Here's another little gem from our fabulously festive Christmas concerts earlier this month!πŸ›· The troika is an ancient Russian vehicle pictured as a sleigh drawn by three horses harnessed abreast one another. Written as part of Sergei Prokofiev's Lieutenant KijΓ© Suite, this piece conjures up visions of dashing through the snow and is a favourite at Christmas concerts worldwide! ... See MoreSee Less

With just a couple of days to go until Christmas, we thought we'd spread a little bonus Christmas spirit with a recording from our Christmas concert a couple of weeks ago! Here's our spectacular opening number - a fanfare based on one of our favourite carols, O Come, All Ye Faithful!🎺

A week ago, we were thrilled to perform our Christmas concerts - two brilliantly festive feasts of carols, Christmas songs and general merriment! We've received some wonderful feedback about the concerts, especially our first ever family-friendly concert in the afternoon, and we're genuinely touched by some of the kind words that people have written. If you came to either of the concerts, we hope that you really enjoyed getting into the festive spirit - we were delighted that they were able to take place this year and thoroughly enjoyed playing for you!βœ¨πŸŽ„πŸŽ΅ ...

We had a great time earlier today for our last outing of 2021 - playing carols in Woodley Town Centre seemed like an excellent way to round off our year and lots of people stopped to enjoy listening to a carol or two! If you heard us (or even made a donation!), thanks for listening and we hope we left you with a bit of a festive glow!πŸŽ„ ... See MoreSee Less

We thoroughly enjoyed the concert, a great mix of music and carols and the sound was exquisite. Particularly enjoyed the minor alterations! A lovely festive evening thank you.
