WHERE TO FIND US
All rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings in the school hall at the Blewbury Primary School, Westbrook Street, Blewbury OX11 9QB . The map below pinpoints both Blewbury School and our band hut.
Beginner Band runs from 6.00 pm – 6.45 pm, Learner Band rehearsals are from 6.30 pm – 7.15 pm, and Main Band rehearsals are from 7.30 pm – 9.15 pm. Feel free just to turn up, although even better if you contact us beforehand (so we can put out a chair and music stand for you!).
While we now rehearse at Blewbury School (since we are to many players for the band hut), our Band Hut is on Boham’s Road, Blewbury OX11 9HF, just 50 yards up Boham’s Road from the A417, on the righthand side, beside the tennis courts and recreation ground. The hut is well marked, with a large logo/sign outside. Boham’s Road is immediately opposite Savage’s Greengrocer and Garden Centre (which is on the A417, also called the London Road).
