Penrith Town Band: Training and Intermediate Bands

Where: Band Room, The Conservative Club, Crown Square, Penrith.
When: alternate Thursdays from 6:15-6:45pm

We welcome players of all ages from seven years up, whatever your musical ability. Everything is provided free of charge, from an instrument to uniform, music and tuition.

Training Band

For beginners of all ages from seven upwards – children and adults – who are keen to learn a brass instrument from scratch. Parents are encouraged to learn alongside their children, rather than sitting in the car!

Members of the Main Band offer free tuition to new players. On Training Band evenings, they sit alongside and help the new players to develop musical and band skills.

The Training Band has its own programme of events.

In 2015 we realised we had a new and talented group of players emerging who had mastered the basics but weren’t quite ready for the intricacies of the Main Band pieces. So we launched the Intermediate Band for people who:

  • have graduated from Training Band
  • haven’t played for a while and want to brush off the cobwebs
  • have experience playing in an orchestra or band on a non-brass instrument

Main Band

In recent years the band have begun to take part in competitions, winning prizes in the Whit Friday Marches and the North West Regional Brass Band Competition.

Main Band rehearses every Monday evening 7:30-9:00pm in the bandroom at the Conservative Club, Crown Square, Penrith CA11 7AB
