New Forest Brass is a dedicated group of brass players of all ages drawn from all walks of life. We rehearse in Applemore, Hythe, near Southampton. We are a contesting brass band who have been promoted to the second section of the West of England region for 2015.

New players are always welcome to come along, although we would be particularly interested in filling the positions shown as vacant. If you would like to join us, then please contact us or come to a rehearsal.

We also have a training band for beginner brass players. All players of any age and any standard are welcome to come and learn how to play a brass instrument and to enjoy playing in the company of others. More information can be found on our training band page!

We perform regularly in the Southampton and New Forest area. See our diary for a list of upcoming engagements. If you would like us to play for your event, then please contact us.

NFB Relegated to Third Section

11 March 2017 A disappointing result in Torquay at the West of England Championships. We worked hard at a difficult test piece, 'Rhapsody in Brass', by Dean Goffin, and were reasonably happy with our performance. Unfortunately the adjudicators disagreed, and we were awarded 16th place out of 17 bands. After 3 years in the Second Section, we will be returning to the Third Section in 2018. The result did not spoil our weekend - we still had a great time, going out for Chinese on the Friday night and Indian on the Saturday. Thanks to everyone who made it so much fun. See you all on Tuesday to start rehearsing our summer programme!

Success at Wessex Training Band Contest

29 January 2017 New Forest Training Band took part in the Wessex Training Band Contest yesterday in Downton. After starting the day with the National Anthem, we played a 20 minute set of music including Slaidburn, Abide with Me, Nellie the Elephant (featuring Mel Palmer on the Bb bass solo), Indiana Jones, Run, and 42nd Street. We were really pleased with our performance, which had lots of energy! We were delighted to be awarded 2nd place in the Training Band section as well as the Worsdale Cup for the best hymn tune performance of the day. Well done to all of Training Band for all your hard work and enthusiasm, and to Chris and the main band helpers!
