Spring and Summer concerts

The band is busy preparing for their Spring and Summer engagements and are very much looking forward to performing at the Cuckoo Fair - when you will be able to catch all four bands performing outside the Memorial Hall. A small group will accompany the Churches Together service on the Sunday morning (1 May) and in the afternoon the  band is organising  a Cuckoo Fair concert at 3pm at the Memorial Hall.  This year it’s entitled ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ and explores  a variety of transport themed music from Those Magnificent Men, to Ticket to Ride to the beautifully peaceful Mid All the Traffic.


All four bands are also looking to recruit musicians.  If you are around Grade Five standard and play cornet or tuba, the senior band would love to hear from you. The training band also has vacancies, especially on cornets, whilst new starters to come along and learn with our Beginners Band are always welcome. The band will  provide the instrument, music and tuition for just £1 per week. For more information contact paul@downtonband.org.uk


Downton band would like to thank everyone for their support over their busy Christmas period. In particular thanks go to Moot House and The Bull Inn for their incredible hospitality on Christmas Day.
