Join East Beds Concert Band

We are always pleased to have new members join the band. If you are a woodwind, brass or percussion player of grade 3 standard or above, come along to a rehearsal and have a go.

East Beds Concert Band is conducted by brass musician and teacher, Liz Schofield, who was one of the band's founding members.

The band consists of children and adults. Some people have started learning recently or have picked up their instrument again after stopping playing years ago, while others have been in the band for many years and are post-grade 8 standard. There are plenty of more experienced players to help out newer band members.

Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings during term time from 7.15pm to 9.15pm. They take place at Stratton Upper School, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire. Parents are welcome to sit in or to drop their children off and collect them at the end. Concerts are held three times a year, towards the end of each school term.

You are welcome to come and try the band for free. If you decide to join, membership costs £60 per year or £55 for those who pay at the start of the new school year.

If you have any questions before coming along to a rehearsal, contact Karen Starling at
