New Forest Brass is a dedicated group of brass players of all ages drawn from all walks of life. We rehearse in Hounsdown, Totton, near Southampton. 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 non-contesting community band providing a friendly environment for brass and percussion players of all abilities and ages to enjoy making music together. The community band may be particularly suitable for those who have recently taken up an instrument or are returning to playing after a break from music. We also provide a training ensemble where more recent beginners can access tuition and learn to play with others for the first time. We have instruments available for loan to members and so can provide access to brass playing even for those who may struggle to afford to buy an instrument. More information can be found on our community band and training ensemble pages.

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 compete in Torquay

9 March 2024 We made our annual visit to Torquay for the West of England regional championships. This year we were in a new venue, as the Second section was held in Upton Vale Baptist Church rather than in the Riviera Centre. We played ‘Triptych’ by Philip Sparke. Our performance didn’t find favour with the adjudicators as were awarded 13th place. Nevertheless we remain in the Second section, and most importantly we had a great weekend, including the customary Chinese and Indian meals. Thanks all who came along.
