About Five Valleys Adult Wind Band

Five Valleys Adult Wind Band is a group specifically for adults players. Working at grade 4 and upwards, the group caters for those who would like to continue developing their playing and ensemble skills whilst at the same time enjoying the experience of being in a band.  We have a wide ranging repertoire including film, swing, and classical music and play several concerts a year.  Recently we've played in Cheltenham Town Hall, Pittville Pump Room and taken part in the National Concert Band Festival.

We are a friendly and supportive group, and you would be welcome to come and join us. Contact our Director, Jenny Steele before attending the first time - glosmusic@gloucestershire.gov.uk.


Rehearsals are at Archway School in Stroud and take place from 9:30am-11:30am on a Saturday morning, term time only. We ask that members be a minimum standard of Grade 4. Please see the calendar for further rehearsal details.
