The Watford Band is a relaxed, traditional brass band based in Watford in the North West of London. Over 100 years old, we maintain an active schedule of performances alongside regular rehearsals and social events. More information about the band is listed on these pages.
We've been busy preparing to celebrate our 125th anniversary in just over two weeks with a special concert, featuring the international soloist Steven Mead! He'll be holding a masterclass for any interested brass players in the morning of Saturday 5th October and featuring in our concert alongside some of our own. We'd love if you could join us! Tickets are available from ticket source in advance, from any band member, or on the door. We look forward to seeing you there!
We had another great concert last night! Thanks to everyone who came for being a fantastic audience with lots of flag-waving and singing. Thanks too to all our deps and special thanks to our guest vocalist Claire Boulter with her fabulous voice. Feedback from the audience was that it "was a truly wonderful evening. The range of talented musicans' hard work, joy and humour created a superb memorable feast. I would love to hear and see the programme again; thank you for coming together for a great performance. It was so good for us audience to feel part of the celebration of astounding composition, skill and high quality entertainment". We hope to see you all at our Christmas concert!
The band is open to players of any instrument and any ability, but we're especially after horn and tuba players. If you, or anyone you know play an instrument then please get in touch or drop along to a rehearsal!
The band are very grateful to Watford council for sponsoring the purchase of our band jackets
