About Us

Our brass band rehearses every Tuesday night from 6:30pm – 9:30 pm (training band is 6:30-7:30) at our new venue, Barnton Community Primary School

We play for enjoyment and are funded through concerts and other entertainment, such as fetes, carnivals and shows.

Barnton Silver Band has been active in the local Barnton and wider Cheshire community since 1891, promoting music through concerts, marches, and performances in a variety of events.  Our players and members come from all walks of life and from in and around the Cheshire area.  The band has represented our region in banding events and concerts.  Highlights have included our 120 year celebrations in 2011, welcoming a Danish brass band to Barnton and joining us for a concert, competing in the famous Whit Friday Marches, and our regular, local presence and support for local events including Remembrance parades and carolling at Christmas.

Our 30+ members are aged from 8 to 80, with a range of abilities.  We always remind ourselves that this is our hobby, so although we continually strive to improve, we maintain a fun, stress free, happy and enjoyable banding experience for everyone.  There is a lot of love in our band!   We have a number of husband/wife players/non players, some who have encouraged their children, grandchildren, even grandparents, to learn, play and contribute to the band.  We also have volunteers and supporters who help us with the running of the band, promoting, general ferrying about and organising events.  These lovely people are often parents and partners of bands people, they might not play but love the music and the jolly, welcoming environment.  Anyone with a genuine interest who doesn’t wish to play is always welcome to join and contribute.
