Bristol Concert Wind Band are a friendly community wind band which have been performing in Bristol, UK for over 30 years. We perform regularly at venues throughout Bristol and the surrounding area, performing both formal and informal concerts as well as park gigs in the summer.

The BCWB family are made up of many bands and groups. We cater for advanced players in the Concert Band, intermediate and improving players in Blown Away! and Winds of Change, and also run learner courses for complete beginners.

Tickets Available for Blown Away!'s Summer Concert

You can now get hold of tickets for Blown Away!'s Summer Concert, being held on Saturday 16th July at Cossham Hall in Thornbury. The concert, which features a Classical vs. Swing theme, is acting MD Rob Bartlett's first formal concert with the band since Nicola Ware went on maternity leave at the beginning of the year, and is a chance to showcase the progress the band has made since Christmas. This will be Rob's second performance of the day, as he is directing Winds Of Change at Frenchay Flower Show earlier in the afternoon!

A Strong Start to the Year for Bristol Concert Wind Band

Bristol Concert Wind Band has started 2016 on a strong footing with the appointment of a new musical director and two formal concerts in Bath and Henleaze. In April BCWB were invited to play a concert in aid of Tumaini Children's Charity. The moving concert, laced with a animal-themed programme was a great success, raising over £1,000 for children in Kenya.


Just a month later BCWB held their annual Spring Concert at Trinity Henleaze United Reformed Church, allowing our new MD Paul Hornsby to showcase his and the band's hard work over just 10 weeks!


We are now looking forward to an eventful Summer, with BCWB playing in Bath and Blaise Castle Estate in July and August, and all the other bands and groups performing in various locations around Bristol between June and September. For more information see our events page!
