A Happy New Year to all our members, past members, followers and friends!
The band playing in Dunster Castle
The Adur Concert Band rehearses in Southwick, West Sussex, UK, and we play concerts all year round in the South East of England.
The Adur Band grew out of the Adur Youth Concert Band in 1991, and in 2001 changed its name to The Adur Concert Band to properly reflect the type of band it had become.
The band has a membership from Shoreham, Hove, Brighton, Worthing, Steyning and as far away as Crawley and Chichester.
We are a community band that welcomes anyone 18 and over who can play a wind instrument or percussion; our members include players from around grade 5, to semi-professional musicians.
