Playing with the band

The Adur Concert Band is an adult group and welcomes new members of age 18 and over. We have players of all standards although those who have not reached grade 5 standard may find the music challenging.

We play a stimulating range of music, including show and film themes, popular standards and special concert band arrangements.

The band performs regularly throughout the year (see our Concerts page), and travels away for weekends in the UK and Europe to perform. We also host or take part in band weekends away, to develop music skills, relax and have fun.

If you would like to join us, email our musical director Andy Burchfield or call on 01444 400618 / 07971 238290.


We rehearse every Saturday morning in term times, from 9:30am until 12:00pm

Covid-19 Pandemic

We are hoping that regulations will allow us to resume rehearsing in a controlled and safe way, from May 22.

Numbers may still be limited, so will we have to ask that everyone who comes to rehearsal has prior agreement for that week. This may require standing back from your section one week so that someone else can take part, or coming to agreements between yourselves.

Full guidelines, times and arrangements will be here on our members’ pages, and the committee will be in touch with you. If you are not on the mailing list, please contact the committee.

Note that so far we are hoping to play two outdoor concerts, in June and July, providing rules continue to be relaxed.
