V.E. Day 75th Anniversary

V.E. Day
ON V.E. Day, Friday May 8th members of Wells City Band , along with many other bands, will stand outside their front doors and play “The Last Post” at 2.55. This will be achieved on different instruments, not just the cornets. We feel this is an important tribute that we want to recognise .
The Band family has keep morale high, with challenges for practicing including playing on Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. We are a diverse group of people of all ages; key workers with the health service, older members self isolating, children not able to get to school, some coping with health issues, one recovering from a stay at Yeovil hospital, so we are a cross section of the community in Wells.
We appreciate the support through emails and phone calls, from our supporters, who are willing us to be ready for an amazing event when we will at last be able to meet.
This quality time at home has given us an opportunity to read the informative book of the history of the band that has been completed by historian Susan Caola. Our book launch has been postponed.
We are finding great comfort in music- we will be ready to share this with you all as soon as possible

We’re Social Distancing

Due to the Corona Virus and social distancing restrictions, Wells City Band regret to inform you that we will not be playing any concerts until we are advised by the Government that it is safe to do so.

Ever wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument?

Ever wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument?

Ever wanted to join a brass band?

Wells City Band is very fortunate to have it’s own Training Section. We offer both individual and group tuition from age 8 to 100!

Once the basic few basic notes are learnt we encourage our learners to join in with the Training Section. Here they begin to understand the basic principles of playing as a group, watching a conductor and all essential skills needed for their progression in to the Main Band.

The Training Section has been involved in concerts throughout 2019; at the Christmas concert, the massed bands day at the Wells Bandstand and our summer Training Section showcase ‘chip’ concert.

If you are interested in learning to play a brass instrument in our Training Section or are someone who hasn’t played for a while and wants to get back into it or if you are an experienced player wishing to join our Main Band please contact Jane Hill on 01749  675668 or complete our contact form.
