Pete Boyles

It is with great sadness that Marshfield Band have to announce the loss of our conductor, Pete Boyles, on Nov 30th 2020.  Pete became our conductor over two years ago after being a friend of the band for many years and the husband of one of our solo cornet players, Margaret. He’ll be sadly missed by all of us and we’d like to send our condolences to Margaret and all of Pete’s family.

After a very busy festive period the band are busying themselves getting a programme together for the summer season. Our first engagement is at Keynsham Bandstand on Sunday 28th April from 3:00 until 5, it’s a free engagement and all are welcome, let’s hope the sun shines for us.  For the rest of our summer engagements please check out the band website calendar or look on our Facebook page.

Many thanks to everyone who supported us for our Christmas performances last year; we had a fabulous time playing at the Catherine Wheel, around the village on Christmas Eve and for the Mummers on Boxing Day as well as other performances outside the area in West Kington and Frampton Cotterell.  We were proud to donate £500 to Doorway in Chippenham last week as a result.

The band rehearses every Wednesday evening at the Withymead from 8:00 until 9:45. We welcome any brass players, new, experienced or returning to playing. We are currently, specifically, recruiting for 2nd baritone, 2nd trombone and cornets (solo & 3rd). Anyone interested please come along on Wednesday evenings

Please see our calendar on the right of the page for our latest events.
