We welcome new players, supporters and sponsors to join our brass band at anytime.

The Band Supporters’ Club run a weekly Cash Draw and members are kept informed of band activities by our regular band news magazine.

Come and Join Us!

The Band are always pleased to welcome new players.

We practice on Friday evenings between 7.30pm-9.30pm at Greyfriars Community Hall, Ringwood.

The band has been part of Ringwood’s life since 1879. In 1978 the band amalgamated with the Burley Band which started life around two years after the Ringwood Band.

We are known as a concert band and have achieved many successes in past years at contests, winning the Third Section in the Wessex Championships in 2004.
