Two weeks ago, WCB kicked off our Christmas season in style by helping Woodley to switch on its Christmas lights! With mince pies and mulled wine,we had a great time accompanying the carol singing from a somewhat soggy audience!

If you like a good Christmas carol, don't forget to book your seats for our wonderfully festive Christmas concerts on Sunday 15th December at Reddam House Theatre (formerly Bearwood College)! We've got some really fabulous music lined up and we'd love to see you there! Full info here:

A couple of weeks ago, WCB took an evening off from our busy engagements schedule to enjoy our annual fireworks social! Following a spectacular local fireworks display, we adjourned to a handy band member's back gardens to enjoy barbecued hotdogs, toasted marshmallows, sparklers, convivial conversation and a spectacular bonfire! It was great to take a moment to catch up with other band members and have the opportunity to socialise before our hectic run of Christmas gigs got under way and we're already looking forward to our Christmas social in a few week's time! ...

Great photos!

And were off! We thoroughly enjoyed our first festive gig of the year, helping to turn on the Woodley Christmas lights - with mince pies and mulled wine (and we actually got some of both this year!) and lots of audience carols, we had a great time providing musical accompaniment to the start of our local high streets Christmas season. If you came along and stuck it out in the pouring rain, you have our undying gratitude - well done!!

Last Sunday, WCB was delighted to once again provide the musical accompaniment for the annual Service of Remembrance in Henley-on-Thames. As well as accompanying the service, the band played the Royal British Legion March to accompany the march-past and principal trumpet Gregor played the Last Post and Reveille to mark the national two minutes silence. As ever, it was a very moving occasion and WCB is proud to have been involved in this important event. ... See MoreSee Less

Right...after all that hard work for the NCBF, its time to let our hair down a bit! Were proud of the fact that were not just a high quality (did we mention AWARD-WINNING!) wind band, but we also manage to be pretty sociable. This immaculately-stacked pile of ex-pallets is all ready for our band fireworks and bonfire night tonight! Well be taking in a local fireworks display, then discussing just what fine musicians the NCBF adjudicators are round a roaring bonfire! Anyone bring the marshmallows...?🎆🔥🎆
