Who are Beckington Bandits?
We are a new, small community concert band set up in the village of Beckington, near Frome, Trowbridge and Warminster. Under the umbrella of Wells City Band, we offer wannabe musicians of all ages and abilities, including beginners, to learn and develop there music skills on a range of brass and woodwind instruments, through affordable small group tuition. People with special needs and learning difficulties are all welcome, providing they are supported by parents or a carers.
History was made on Saturday 16th December 2018, when Beckington Bandits performed for the first time at the Wells City Band Annual Christmas Concert. Some members of Beckington Bandits had never performed in a concert before, so it was especially pleasing to see how they rose to the challenge and performed their pieces brilliantly. There was even a cornet duet!
