About the band

Oxted Band is an amateur Brass Band, based in the Surrey town of Oxted, where we have been since 1901.

The band is made up of a friendly group of amateur musicians who come from all walks of life, but are drawn together by the common interest of playing music, both for enjoyment and to improve ourselves and to entertain those who listen to us.

Oxted Band has around 30 playing members at the present time from a wide range of backgrounds, and ranging in age from school students to those enjoying their retirement.  Some members have joined us in the last few months, others have been with the band since the days of black and white photos!

The band meets weekly throughout the year to rehearse a variety of music which we perform at a range of events including our own concerts, local events such as fetes and parties; and community events around Christmas and Remembrance Sunday.  We also take part in Band Contests which are a great challenge for the band to improve our playing as a group.

Find out about the individual members on our Personnel page.
