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/May: A formal indoor Spring concert
  • May/June: Playing at the Queen’s Park Infant Academy school fete
  • June and July: Informal summer concerts in local outdoor venues like bandstands and gardens
  • October every other year: We go on tour! In 2022 we went on tour to Falmouth and in 2018 we went to Wales
  • October/November: A formal indoor Autumn concert
  • December:
    • A carol service at Queen’s Park Infant Academy
    • A Christmas carol concert
    • Busking around Bournemouth to raise money for our band (a registered charity) and our charity of the year. You’ll find us playing Christmas carols outside supermarkets and at shopping centres
