New Forest Brass is a dedicated group of brass players of all ages drawn from all walks of life. We rehearse in Applemore, Hythe, near Southampton. We are a contesting brass band who have been promoted to the second section of the West of England region for 2015.

New players are always welcome to come along, although we would be particularly interested in filling the positions shown as vacant. If you would like to join us, then please contact us or come to a rehearsal.

We also have a training band for beginner brass players. All players of any age and any standard are welcome to come and learn how to play a brass instrument and to enjoy playing in the company of others. More information can be found on our training band page!

We perform regularly in the Southampton and New Forest area. See our diary for a list of upcoming engagements. If you would like us to play for your event, then please contact us.

NFB return to Saddleworth for Whit Friday Marches

22 May 2016 Having enjoyed our first taste of Whit Friday last year, we ventured North again to attend the march contests in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. This time we managed to attend contests in 7 villages, at Lydgate, Grotton, Lees, Scouthead, Delph, Diggle and Dobcross. At each one we marched up before being adjudicated on our performance of Bravura by George Allen. It was dry to start, but we got very wet at the last two contests - luckily there were band rooms at those to shelter in. Still waiting for the contest results, but a great time was had by all! Thanks to everyone who came.

Most Improved Player Awards for Ruby and Mel

16 April 2016 Congratulations to Ruby Warren and Mel Palmer who were awarded the Mike Swatman Shield and Trevor Jones Award for most improved young and adult players respectively at our recent Spring Concert at Waterside. It was a hard decision as we could have awarded the prizes to several candidates, but Ruby has been making great progress on cornet, while Mel this year made an unusual but very successful switch from cornet to Bb bass! Well done both!
