You’ll find us performing concerts in Bournemouth, Dorset and further afield as we go on tour every two years. 

We’ve got some exciting concerts coming up in 2022 and you don’t want to miss us:

When? Monday 29 August 2022, 3:30pm-5:30pm
What? We’re very lucky this year to have the opportunity to play at Regent’s Park Bandstand in London. Only a select few bands get to play here every year and we absolutely can’t wait. If you’re looking for something to do over the August bank holiday, make a day of it and join us in the spectacular grounds of this famous central park. Chill out and relax to our easy-listening summer tunes. You can bring food and a picnic rug or hire a deck chair for something more comfy.
There will be performances from other bands throughout the day, so it’s not to be missed.
Where? Regent’s Park Bandstand in London, NW1 4NT.
How much? Free!
Get more information about the park’s summer events on the Regent’s Park Music Festival website. Any donations will go towards the Friends of Regent’s Park.

Concerts in Bournemouth, Dorset and beyond – a typical year

We perform several concerts throughout the year and each is very different depending on where we play and the time of year. Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for lots of photos and videos.

Each concert has its own theme. In the summer we often play well-known pop tunes, Disney songs and film music – pieces that’ll attract a crowd in public places like Bournemouth Gardens and the grounds of Highcliffe Castle.

At Christmas we round off the year nicely by playing carols all around Bournemouth, Christchurch, Wimborne, Ferndown and Poole. We busk outside supermarkets and at shopping centres collecting money for band funds and our chosen charity of the year.

Here’s what a typical year of concerts looks like for us:

  • March/April: A formal indoor concert.
  • May/June: Playing at the Queen’s Park Infant Academy school fete.
  • June and July: Summer tunes in the Bournemouth Gardens bandstand and other outdoor venues.
  • October every other year: We go on tour! In 2018 we went to Wales and performed a joint concert with the Aber Valley Male Voice Choir and also played at Caerphilly Castle. Read about our adventure to Wales.
  • October/November: A formal indoor concert.
  • November/December every other year: Playing in the National Concert Band Festival (NCBF) competition.
  • December:
    • A carol service at Queen’s Park Infant Academy.
    • A Christmas carol concert.
    • Busking around Bournemouth to raise money for the band and our charity of the year. You’ll find us playing Christmas carols outside supermarkets and at shopping centres.
