Kingsbridge Silver Band

Hope Cove 2019, with Musical Director Irene Jones

Kingsbridge Silver Band was founded in 1921 and has been in existence and playing continuously since then. This makes it one of the longest-established bands in the country and means that we are always looking for new members of any age or ability to keep this fine tradition going. We meet on Tuesday evenings in the band hut just to the left of Tesco in Kingsbridge but not just at the moment during the Covid-19 epidemic. Please contact me if you would like to know more. There are lots of pictures of the band on Facebook.

Remembrance Sunday 2016

The Silver Band does a number of carol engagements at Christmas (the 2019 programme is here) and plays each year for the floral dance during Kingsbridge Fair week in July; a summer open-air service at in the little square outside Hope Cove Methodist Church; occasionally for Kingsbridge British Legion and in the bandstand at Kingsbridge (click to see some video); and at Kingsbridge’s Remembrance Sunday ceremony each November.

However the floral dance at Kingsbridge on 19 July 2017 was wet wet wet – but the band played on, as you can see from this link to the Kingsbridge Gazette. And there’s another (exclusive!) video here.
