An evening concert of wind band music, provided by Bracknell & Wokingham Community Band. BWCB are a large, established band with a varied repertoire, to suit many tastes.
The Victorian bandstand may be long gone from Alexandra Gardens, but we are here to revive the spirit of live music in the park. So sit back and enjoy a relaxing evening; let the sounds wash over you while taking in the view of Windsor Castle in the distance.
BWCB is a joint venture between Berkshire Maestros and Bracknell Open Learning Centre. The band attracted over 50 players to its start-up rehearsal in January 2008 and now has almost 100 members.
The band is an open-access wind band for adult players, playing at around grades 3 or higher, based on the principle of mutual support and encouragement. The band is led by Musical Director Marc Edwards, supported by brass and wind specialists.
