Ben Harker Jazz Duo – Saturday 29 July

Watership Brass Band – Sunday 30 July

Watership Brass Band, with a current membership of 32 volunteer musicians, meets in Newbury on a weekly basis to indulge in our love of music. Our members are drawn from all walks of life and with an age difference between our youngest and oldest members of over 50 years, we embrace the philosophy that 'music is for ALL'

Watership Brass started life in 1980 and was originally known as The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Band based in Basingstoke. Around 1984 the band moved to Kingsclere, a town located within Watership Down, the name was changed to Watership Brass.

Storm damage to the Kingsclere Methodist Hall in 1990 forced a move, firstly to the Baptist Church Hall and then to our current place of residence, the Newbury Sea Cadets Hall, in Craven Dene, off London Road in Newbury. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings throughout the year and welcome visitors and new members enthusiastically.

Watership Brass' motto is 'Serving the Community Musically' and this is reflected in our performance at local venues. Past events have included fetes, wedding receptions, church recitals, charity events, bandstand concerts and, whilst parades are not often requested, the Newbury Remembrance Day Parade is one that we are proud to lead.

Whilst we enjoy our local events, we have also entertained audiences further afield. Past tours have included Holland (1991), Germany (1996), Canada (1998), South Africa (2001), Italy (2007), Belgium in 2012 and a multi-country tour with concerts in Holland, Germany and Luxembourgin 2015.

The choir cover a wide range of repertoire including pop, gospel, sacred choral music and soul. They have performed at many local events, including Windsor Castle where they have been invited to perform again this Christmas and perform annually at Eton Chapel Carol Service. They also have regular performances at The Curve.

New members are always welcome.

Sandhurst Silver Band – Saturday 19 August

Sandhurst Silver Band is a friendly, progressive and independent brass band that has been making music in the community since 1908.  It has enjoyed contesting success in recent years.  Sandhurst Community Brass was established more recently as a fully functioning brass band for those players who wish to enjoy playing in a non-contesting band.  The community band is open to players of all abilities and enjoys a full calendar of events and concerts throughout the year.

Will Ham pianist-singer – Sunday 20 August

Euphonic’s ever expanding set list includes tracks from Nora Jones, Eva Cassidy, Doris Day, Nancy Sinatra, Nina Simone, Dusty Springfield, Ella Fitzgerald, Carole King & Ellie Goulding.
 
The duo regularly entertain audiences in a variety of venues in both public and private gigs across Berkshire and Oxfordshire including bars, restaurants, weddings, parties, corporate events and even the odd boat!   

The Sound Crowd – Sunday 27 August

The Sound Crowd is a singing group meeting every Friday in Windsor since 2009.  

We sing songs from a wide variety of genres (apart from the stuffy ones!)  Arranged in three part harmony designed to be enough of a challenge but not a chore.   The sessions are always uplifting and a fantastic way of kick starting the weekend.   The bandstand is the perfect venue for a sing song and who knows how many of the audience we can get involved?
