The Wiveliscombe Town Band is a brass band that has been in operation since 1896, currently led by the bandmaster and musical genius Chris Grabham.
Despite the old heritage of Wiveliscombe's premier musical ensemble, we perform a huge variety of music, spanning from pop, to musical theatre, to Doctor Who soundtracks!
We welcome players of any age and skill level, and can provide instruments and tuition free of charge; No subs are required for membership, but donations are appreciated!
The learner band, main band, and drum line meet weekly in the Silver Street Centre in Wiveliscombe. You can see the specific timings below:
Learner Band - Every Monday 6-7pm
Drum Line - Every Monday 6-7pm
Main Band - Every Monday 7-9pm
The Training Band is suitable for people of ages 1-100, who wish to learn a brass instrument. As stated, we will provide free instruments and tuition every week. Members of the training band will have the opportunity to perform alongside the main band at many gigs, and when ready, may move up to the main band itself.
The Drum Line is the newest section of the band, led by conductor Chris Grabham and main band member Ben Morrell. Our percussion collection is ever growing, currently including a full kit and many individual drums and cymbals. The drum line plays with the main band at every gig, and at our bigger events such as Summer concerts, opportunities for drum kit solos often arise!
