Established in the 19th Century, Petworth Town Band is one of West Sussex's few remaining traditional Town Bands
Why not join us? Here is what our members have to say...
"Petworth Town Band members are such a welcoming, helpful group of people and no matter what standard you are you can feel great satisfaction and enjoyment playing to the best of your ability. "
"After many years of retirement, The Petworth Town Band has provided an enthusiasm for playing I lost many years ago, supported by a conductor and musical director who have made me feel welcome to a group I would not otherwise have met."
"As a late starter to playing an instrument/reading music, the band has enabled me to make progress, play with a fine bunch of musicians and contribute to the local community!"
Steve, Tenor Horn
"I joined the band after my son started playing, I couldn’t play an instrument or read music! Now 12 years on he has moved onto other interests and I’m still playing with Petworth Town Band, and still having fun with a good bunch of friends."
"Being part of the band has developed my playing skills and confidence and helped me achieve in exams and music at school. The experienced/older band members have taken me under their wing and were instrumental (pun intended) in making me a really good cornet player."
"I’ve been playing the flute in the band for three years, and I can honestly say that I’ve never come across a more friendly and welcoming group of musicians."
"It’s one of the best things I have done and I have obtained a great deal of pleasure during my time with Petworth Town Band. I’d recommend it to anyone."
