New Forest Brass is a dedicated group of brass players of all ages drawn from all walks of life. We normally rehearse in Hounsdown, Totton, near Southampton, although in summer 2021 we have been rehearsing outdoors at Sunnyfields Farm due to Covid restrictions. We are a contesting brass band who are in the second section of the West of England region.

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.

First gig in almost 18 months raises over £300 for charity

7 August 2021 A wonderful afternoon of music making at Sunnyfields Farm, Marchwood, as we gave our first public performance since the start of the Covid pandemic. We collected £342.88 in support of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a fantastic cause close to our hearts. It was great to be back playing in front of an extremely enthusiastic audience. Thank you to Tom, Ian and all the team at Sunnyfields for your support in helping us get back to banding.

14 March 2020 We competed in the West of England regional championships last weekend, back in the Second Section after our promotion last year. We were reasonably happy with our performance of 'The Golden Sabre' by Kit Turnbull and came 10th, our joint highest position in the regionals since 1997! Thanks to Ian and all the band for their hard work.
