Band trip to Landivisiau

The band are planning a trip to Bideford’s twin town, Landivisiau and are looking for a few more people to join them! You don’t need to be a player! The trip is 26th – 29th May. If you’re interested in this contact Becky on 01237 475653, or bandsecretary@bidefordtownband.co.uk


Bideford Town Band are starting the new year with a new look in the shape of brand new uniforms. First revealed at their Christmas concerts at The Royal Hotel, Bideford, in December, the distinctive modern teal shades make a bold change from the previous burgundy. The Training band also have brand new teal coloured jumpers, and really looked and sounded the part at the Christmas Concerts.

The band also have a new set of waterproof jackets, which were well used during the band’s busy Christmas season. The band were out carol playing nearly every day through December and raised £818 in Mill Street through donations from generous shoppers. The band would like to thank the public for their continued support.

The band would like to thank both Bideford Town Council and The Bridge Trust, as the purchase of the new uniforms would not have been possible without their support.

The band are looking forward to a busy and exciting 2017 of which a few highlights will be The West of England Regional Final of the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain on March 11th, a trip to Landivisiau (Bideford’s twin town) with the twinning association in May, as well as taking part the performance of ‘Brassed Off’ in association with the Up-Close Theatre Group on 12th and 13th May.
