Formed in 2001, Ascot Brass is a non-contesting British brass band that focuses on presenting high quality concerts. We have a long-standing partnership with Taplow youth choirs, and have for many years held fund-raising concerts for Macmillan Cancer and several Salvation Army centres, among other charities. The band is itself a registered charity, no 1107905.
Now based in Maidenhead, we still have a regular engagement at Ascot racecourse, providing music for the Christmas race meeting and community carol singing. We’ve also featured at Royal Ascot, and other special occasions at the racecourse.
We rehearse weekly on Monday evenings at Maidenhead Salvation Army Hall. If you’re interested in joining us, take a look at our Players page for information on vacancies.
You can find full information of our forthcoming engagements on our Concerts page, and more on the band’s history, membership and management in the About Us section.
The News section includes reports on past concerts. If you’ve heard us play before and want to let us know what you thought, please leave a message in our Visitors’ Book in the Contact section—we’d love to hear from you! In this section, you’ll also find a form to email the band or the web team.
There’s a wide range of photos from our past engagements in the Gallery, and you can find more photos and videos of the band on our Facebook page. We’re very active, so feel free to give us a 'like' to stay in touch!
