HEATHFIELD SILVER BAND

Registered Charity 273068

2016: See us at....

The above concert is a fund-raising event for St. Richard's Church in Heathfield and Heathfield Silver Band has been asked to provide the music. Click on the poster above for contact details regarding this concert.

 

The programme includes African Funk, Hey Jude, Mr. Sandman, Toccata, Volare, Hit the Road Jack, The Lion King, Moon River and Solid Gold Soul (Dancing in the Street, Midnight Hour, Mustang Sally etc.).

Wow! The sun actually shone at the Heathfield French Market (Le Marché) this year on August Bank Holiday Monday and we had a great time. African drumming band Muso Bango joined us on the stage for a rendition of African Funk and a gathering of French cyclists jigged around after having their photograph taken in front of the stage. See some of our performance on YouTube, or watch the event in general.

Eastbourne Bandstand 2016

Oh, it really was windy on Eastbourne Bandstand this year but we thoroughly enjoyed dishing out a selection of upbeat music for the more hardy of Eastbourne's visitors.

 

Here's a video (yes, we know its faults) of 'Solid Gold Soul'.

 

A general compilation video is also on YouTube

HEATHFIELD SILVER BAND

 

Heathfield Silver Band is a friendly, lively, non-contesting brass band based in Heathfield (East Sussex). We were founded in 1888 and have continued serving the area since that date, except for a brief war-time break. The band plays at local events in and around Heathfield and often further afield. If you enjoy playing a wide range of music and like to have fun then come along!

We are a registered charity (no. 273068) and, although we generally earn a fee at engagements, we often perform to raise money for other charities. The players receive no payment.

We rehearse every Tuesday at our own bandroom in Alexandra Road, Heathfield, TN21 8EA, from 7.30-9.30 pm (with a tea break!). Our training band meets the same evening from 6.30-7.15 pm. For further information on our activities please contact the Band Secretary, Mallory Hansford, on 01435 862398.

The band is always seeking to increase its membership and we currently have vacancies in several sections. We welcome players of any age or ability and offer our training band to complete novices.
