History

Patcham Silver Band is a not-for-profit musical organization formed for the purpose of making brass band music to uplift and entertain the wider community – and have fun doing so! A strong secondary aim is to support any interested individuals who would like to learn to perform brass music within our band, particularly the young.

Our income comes from modest subscriptions paid by our members, and from hire fees, concert takings and donations. Our major expenditure items include rental of our rehearsal venue, musical spending (scores, instruments, uniforms etc) and comprehensive insurance (including public liability).

  1. Hi my daughter Esme (11) is very keen to play the trumpet and is rather jealous of her brother who has just started to play sax in Little Big Band at the High School. Brighton and Hove Music Services are unable to offer her lessons as there is no other interest in her school. Can you recommend a local teacher (Patcham) and is it possible to join your band once she has some skills. I am not even sure if she produce a note, but she is very keen.

  2. Hi there.

    I was communicating with Sandra on fb about playing at our school ( Carden Primary) Christmas fete. December 8th.
    Sandra said she had pencilled the date in so I messaged her to confirm last month. I’ve not heard anything back so just checking here that’s still okay?
    Best wishes
    Ros
