Fakenham Town Band

 

About Fakenham Town Band...

Fakenham Town Band is one of the few brass bands in East Anglia that can boast existence in 3 different centuries.

Formed in 1881 by 6 men in a pub, Fakenham Town Band has survived many ups and downs including 2 world wars. Nevertheless, sheer determination and commitment by members over the years have ensured that the band not only survives, but reaches high levels of musical performance for the enjoyment of audiences and players alike.

Fakenham Town Band is very popular, often giving up to 40 performances per year ranging from garden fetes through to concerts. Most events are in North Norfolk and the surrounding area. See the concert list for future engagements.

The main focus of the band is to provide entertainment for the local community and for the personal pleasure of the players. Practices are held every Monday and Thursday evening in Trap Lane Pavilion, Fakenham.

Monday night practices from 7pm - 8.30pm are dedicated to the teaching of new members how to play their chosen instrument and to help novice players develop further. A team of dedicated experienced players assist in this workshop.

Thursday night is the main practice night starting at 7.30 and finishing at 10pm. Everyone works hard to achieve high standards, but there is always room for a laugh too!

New members, both experienced and novice are always welcome. The majority of current players were inexperienced when they joined, therefore there is a good appreciation of how daunting it can be to join a band for the first time. There is always someone nearby to help or give a word of encouragement.
Why not come along and not only learn a new skill, but make a new circle of friends too? Instruments are provided.

Mission Statement: Fakenham Town Band is committed to the making and enjoyment of music for the benefit of its members and the community. We hold no affiliation to any religious or political organisation and welcome new members from all walks of life. It’s all about the music!
