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!

NFB back in second section in Torquay

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.

Abbey Road 50th anniversary concert raises over £700 for charity

19 October 2019 New Forest Brass main and training bands put on a fantastic concert at New Forest Academy in support of Motor Neurone Disease Association, a cause dear to our hearts. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the release of the Abbey Road album, the main band paid tribute to the Beatles, performing many tunes from the album including Something, Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Here Comes the Sun. The second half of the concert began with a performance from NFB Training Band, followed by the main band's finale performing all of the classics from the Last Night of the Proms. The concert was a great success, raising over £700 for MNDA. Well done all involved!
