We are a friendly community brass band based in Egham, West Surrey, near London, with a history stretching back over a hundred years. Our busy engagement list includes community events such as Remembrance Sunday, the Windsor Christmas Parades and local carnivals. In the Summer we play outdoor concerts in local parks including the RHS Wisley gardens.
In the last few years we have performed in concert with guest soloists including Owen Farr, Glyn Williams, Chris Jeans, Roger Webster, Steve Sykes and Alan Morrison. We are also available for private or corporate events.
In 2010 we qualified to represent the region at the First Section National Finals in Harrogate. In January 2013 we were promoted to the top Championship Section in the London and Southern Counties Region for the first time in our 117-year history. In January 2015, Egham will be back in familiar territory and will be competing in the First Section for the regional competition in March.
The summer of 2010 marked the formation of the Egham Training Band, a new band for learners in Surrey. This group is led by our flugelhorn player, and retired principal cornet of The Welsh Guards, Stewart Gaudion, with input from other band members and local tutors within the Surrey area. Rehearsals are now well underway with 16 children on Monday evenings from 6.30 - 7pm. The training band's first concert performance was a great success as part of the senior band concert last Christmas and they also gave a short performance at the Englefield Green Fair in the Summer. We are looking to grow the band further, so please get in touch if your child is interested in joining.
