The Main Band’s next engagement is at the Northbourne Centre in Didcot. If the current outbreak of sunny weather continues it will be a real pleasure for the band to play inside in a cool shady environment! The performance will be from 3pm to 5pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
The band brought festive cheer to the Style Acre Christmas Fete this morning at Savages. We played some of our seasonal favorites, and were lucky enough to accompany Father Christmas on his sleigh journey around the village. We were also joined by passers-by who helped the band with a lively performance of ‘Jingle Bells’!
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers at Style Acre Tea Room for the lovely tea and coffee they provided for the band. We hope your event successful and you have a lovely Christmas!

Order now for the Christmas carolling season!
BBB were pleased to join Blewbury Village in their Remembrance Service earlier today. Lead by Neil, BBB joined the congregation in playing several powerful hymns before Bruce played The Last Post. We then moved to the War Memorial for the laying of the wreaths, before playing our final hymn of the day, ‘Aberystwyth’.
It is always an honour for our players to be part of the village’s Remembrance Service. Thank you to the organisers for your support.
BBB will be supporting Blewbury’s Christmas celebrations when it plays carols on the Playclose on Christmas Eve. Come and sing some carols and meet Father Christmas.
Come and listen to the band playing carols in Sainsbury’s, Didcot on Friday 22nd December. Enjoy listening to some festive music whilst doing your shopping!
BBB will be playing carols at the Style Acre Christmas event to be held at Savages, Blewbury on Saturday 9th December at 11am. Come and meet Father Christmas whilst listening to the band. A great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping!

Blewbury Brass Band is currently preparing for its annual winter concert, this year with a ‘Party!’ theme. The concert, to be held at Chilton Village Hall at 7:30pm on Saturday 18th November, promises to be a real treat featuring our Main Band, our Learner Band and our senior players from Blewbury Youth Brass.
Musical Director, Ian Barlow, said, ‘The band has been working hard on new pieces for the concert. We are including old favourites such as Manilow Magic and Macarthur Park as well as playing some more traditional brass band music, with every piece cleverly linked to the theme. We will be featuring our trombone section and even including a piece from our recent successful tour to Germany with Blewbury Youth Brass’.
Wine, soft drinks and party nibbles will be available during the interval. Tickets are available now from band members or can be purchased on the door priced £8 (adults), £6 (seniors) and £1 (children).
Congratulations to all who took part on Sunday 8th October 2017. In our first contest, the band took awards for the best music, best entertainment, best instrumentalist (Alice, on tenor horn) and most youth players in the unregistered section.
Overall, the band came third for entertainment out of the 17 competing bands.
In addition we were treated to stunning solos from Alice, on horn, and Rose, on baritone.
Thanks to our players and supporters. Thank you to the ODBBA for putting on such a great event.
