Welcome to Coventry Festival Band

The Coventry Festival Band is a thriving community brass band that enjoys entertaining audiences at a wide variety of venues across Coventry and Warwickshire.

The emphasis is on the enjoyment of making music and our varied repertoire reflects this. We can be found playing anything from traditional brass band pieces to classical and show numbers, singalongs, swing, pop and film music. As well as the musical side of things, we have a lively social involvement including tea and a chat, outings to concerts and band dinners. We have a number of instruments available to lend to anyone without their own.

We rehearse twice a week on Tuesday and Friday evenings, 7:30-9:30pm, at the Cheylesmore Community Centre, Coventry. Our subscriptions are only £2 per week.


We are going to  the Area Contest in March 2019 at Kenilworth School, Kenilworth and need the following players to help us improve our position in the 4th Section

  • Eb and Bb Bass
  • flugel horn
  • front row cornet.

However, any committed brass band player is very welcome!

We are a friendly community band and welcome brass players of all abilities. If you want to return to playing after a break this is the band for you. We have a selection of brass instruments that can be offered to new players if they do not have their own.

Our rehearsals are Tuesday and Friday from 7.30 to 9.30pm at Cheylesmore Community Centre, Arundel Road, Coventry CV3 5JX. We have an interval at 8.30pm for refreshments and a chat. A contingent of the band also nip into the Festival pub after practices.

Our subscriptions are only £3 per week.
