About Us

We Are Bristol Concert Wind Band!


Bristol Concert Wind Band is a well-established, friendly community wind band which has been active in Bristol for over 35 years. We perform regularly at venues throughout Bristol and the surrounding area, holding both formal and informal concerts as well as park gigs in the summer.


The BCWB family is made up of many bands and groups. We cater for advanced players in the Concert Band, intermediate and improving players in Blown Away! and Winds of Change, and also run learner courses for complete beginners.

We've Got History


From musical novices to top level performers, the Bristol Concert Wind Band family has been providing opportunities to play wind music in the Bristol area for over 35 years.


In 1980 we started with just one band, but soon improver and training bands were formed to cater for growing demand and numbers. Today we enjoy a membership in excess of 150 spread across all of our bands and groups at all grades and abilities! 

Our Mission is Simple

Our primary aim to provide opportunities for adults to learn, perform and enjoy playing wind music together in Bristol whatever their experience, ability or background. We believe that learning and playing a musical instrument is a hugely rewarding experience, both on a personal and social level, and should be available to all.
