We've just had an absolutely splendid week-end (16th/17th July), playing at the Heathfield Farmers' Market on the Saturday and at an afternoon picnic at The Half Moon in Cade Street (Heathfield). The sun shone and the public enjoyed the upbeat nature of both events. One member of the public at the Farmers' Market commented how he had always considered brass bands to be 'funereal' until he heard us! What with Solid Gold Soul, Bohemian Rhapsody, Go West, The Circle of Life, African Funk, Mr. Sandman, Valerie, etc......Funereal? No Way!

Hear it all again at Le Marché and jig along like they did last year!

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.
