Welcome to Broadstone Community Concert Band’s web site. We’re an amateur wind band based in Broadstone, Dorset offering its members a fun and yet challenging opportunity to play within a large wind band.
We usually play a couple of large charity concerts each year at local venues which include Poole Lighthouse, Wimborne Minster and The Tivoli in Wimborne.
We are currently a fifty strong band with a wide range of standards including hobbyist and a couple of professionals. We’re a very friendly bunch and welcome newcomers to any practice session - please email us first to arrange a suitable night to visit.
We play most Thursday evenings from 7pm until 9pm at St John’s Church, Tudor Road, Broadstone and play for a couple of hours on the numerous pieces we intend to perform at the next concert wherever that may be.
Many thanks for the fantastic turn out at our Summer 2018 concert - which raised money for two event charities Forest Holme Hospice and Poole Hospital Charity.
Our 2018 Carols in the Corn Market was another very well attended event with about 800 people squeezing into Wimborne Corn Market which raised around £1,100 Wimborne Mayor’s charities.
Many thanks to those who celebrated with us at our summer 2019 concert at Lighthouse Poole - proceeds went to to both Forest Holme Hospice and Poole Hospital NHS Trust.
If you play a 'Wind Band' instrument and you're lookoing to play in a big friendly band environment, then do get in touch with us by email initially. We're usually on the lookout for new players who are looking to commit to regular rehearsal attendance.
Sometimes certain instrument sections are full so you do need to email first, rather than just turning up to one of our rehearsal sessions - drop us a line here
Being an amateur band shows the commitment and time both band members and the band's conductor Damon Corio, have invested in providing a friendly, local concert band atmosphere to enable younger and older players to congregate and enjoy their pleasure of playing music and sharing with others at a couple of charity evening concerts.
We're on Facebook so why not have a look and share our news and concerts with your friends. We have anywhere between 400 and 800 members of the audience, but it would be fantastic to fill our larger venues like Lighthouse Poole, so we can raise more money for the charieties we support at each concert - click here to go to our Facebook page
