Birchwood Band - The community brass band in Warrington

Birchwood Band at Birchwood Forest Park

We are blessed to have a great 'core band', but, like so many others, we would love to have more players. We are a community band, so all ages and abilities are welcome. Instrument and tuition can be provided. If you want to come along for a blow, just do so, we are very friendly band. We are particularly interested in percussion players, just now even if they don't blow! Everyone is welcome.
