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 will be in the third section of the West of England region from 2018.

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.

Good result in Torquay

10 March 2018 4th place for NFB in the Third Section of the West of England Regional Championships - a good result! We enjoyed working on the test piece, Napoleon on the Alps by Philip Harper. We had a long wait to play as we were drawn to play as the last band on the day. We were pleased with the result, although we just missed out on going to the finals and being promoted. The contest was followed by the obligatory curry.

28 January 2018 Well done NFB training band who came second in the Wessex training band contest in Downton yesterday. A great performance of a challenging set. Well done to Hannah Gordon for a great solo in 'You Raise Me Up' and to the bass and cornet sections for winning instrumental prizes and to everyone for their hard work.

40th Anniversary Celebrations

24 June 2017 New Forest Brass is 40 years old! To celebrate, we invited past members of the band to join the current senior and training bands to a reunion dinner and concert at Hounsdown School. The highlight of the concert was a performance by a massed band of over 70 past and current members of the band, as well as seeing so many friends from over the years. Thank you to everyone who took part, and especially for Mike Miller and the committee for their tireless work in organising the event.
