Blewbury Brass Band is very fortunate in having its own purpose-built rehearsal room – The Sonny Wilson Rehearsal Hall, situated next to the new sports pavilion, cricket ground and tennis facilities. The rehearsal room is spacious and heated, has a large car park and has disabled access including to the toilet facilities.
The band relies upon hall rental to fund many of its day to day activities but also recognises that we have a responsibility to encourage new musical talent in the surrounding area. To this end the band hall is available to rent at a reasonable rate that covers costs but hopefully remains affordable to budding musicians.
The hall is available to other organisations who want a rehearsal area for musical groups and similar events, subject to the approval of the Band Committee. It is ideal for pop groups (who don’t want to disturb neighbours when they practice – we don’t have any neighbours!), and as a photography studio, as this photograph shows…
The fee for using the hall is currently £4 per hour, inclusive of electricity and heating.
To hire the hall please contact Claire Eisenhandler by telephone 01235 850558 or email (bandhut@ blewburybrassband.org.uk;).

The hall is 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).
Please remember that the hall is cleaned and maintained by volunteers for the benefit of us all, so please ensure you leave it clean and tidy.
