Carfax Bandstand Entertainment – organised by Horsham District Council
There will be a traditional band performing on the Carfax Bandstand every Saturday, from 11am to 1pm, from 4 May to 24 August (inclusive), town centre events permitting.
Today’s band is Slinfold Concert Band which is a a community band featuring brass and woodwind instruments and percussion. Founded in the late 1970’s, the Band takes its name from the village of Slinfold, near Horsham in West Sussex, where it rehearses every week.
The Band has grown to around fifty members and encourages players of all ages to improve their musical skills and to enjoy making music together. In December 2015 Slinfold Concert Band became a registered charity and is run by a committee of trustees.
Slinfold Concert Band may be seen on bandstands, in concert venues and at charity fund-raising events across the South East of England. The music in the Band’s repertoire covers a wide variety of styles and genres including light classical, Big Band, music from film and stage and plenty more besides! The pieces are a diverse range of old and new, lively and relaxing, serious and light-hearted so there is always plenty of interest for audiences and players alike.
