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 Senior Band is now back to full rehearsals following the pandemic but we are still operating in a socially distanced Covid secure way for now until the virus is completely under control.

We practise on Monday and Thursday (except every 3rd Thursday in the month), Training Band from 6.30pm to 7.45pm (starting again soon) 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.
