Portsmouth City Band

We are a traditional and friendly Brass Band based in the Portsmouth area for players of all ages and abilities, undertaking an extensive range of engagements throughout the year ranging from formal concerts and civic events to fetes, parties, weddings, church services, carnivals and celebrations.

Both our Training Band and Senior Band normally rehearse twice a week at our headquarters in the Portsmouth Deaf Centre, Arundel Street, Portsmouth, PO1 1LX.  To see a map of our bandroom’s location, click here.

The Portsmouth Deaf Centre is operating at reduced capacity at the moment until the country returns to some kind of normality.  We are therefore meeting to rehearse on a rota basis to allow all our members to meet up safely and to keep playing in line with the government guidelines to avoid spreading the CoVid-19 virus.

When things get back to normal we practise on Monday and Thursday, Training Band from 6.30pm to 7.45pm and Senior Band from 8.00pm to 9.30pm. Anybody, regardless of age or ability, is welcome and there is always somebody available to lend a hand with advice on most musical issues.

If you have any queries or would like to find out more, contact our Secretary Carol Mason via e-mail and I’m sure we’ll be able to help.
