Recent news

Marshfield Band is led by experienced conductor and euphonium player Steve Ruddell, aka Barney, who became our conductor back in 2021.  Barney first joined the band at the age of 8, some time ago (he won't admit just how long!) and has remained a dedicated member ever since.  Barney was presented a certificate and badge to mark his place on the Gloucestershire Brass Band Association's Roll of Honour in 2022, in recognition of 50 years' service to the brass banding movement, in 2022.

Barney's not alone in this honour; flugel player extraordinaire Bev Williams also received his certificate and badge last year. Yet it's an equally friendly band for newcomers; we've also welcomed several talented new members into our existing ranks over the past couple of years.

If you're reading this and considering your next banding move, why not come and give us a try?

Vacancies

We are a friendly band who always welcome new players to our existing ranks. We'd love to hear from any bass, euphonium and cornet players who are looking for a space in a welcoming, enthusiastic local band, whether you're experienced, a keen improver, or returning after a break from playing.

In particular, after the retirement of our much-loved percussionist Barbara last year, we're very keen to hear of any percussion / kit players, whether you're already accomplished, or learning and of a reasonably independent standard.

If you fancy coming along, we rehearse every Wednesday evening between 8:00 pm and 9:30 pm, at Withymead football pavilion in Marshfield.

If you are interested, just email our secretary Sarah on squirrelsflugel@gmail.com, call the Musical Director Barney on 07735 901415, or simply show up on a Wednesday evening.
