Thank you for visiting the website of Thundersley Brass Band. We are a competing Championship Section Brass Band based in South Benfleet, Essex. We perform at numerous concerts, contests, charitable events, private functions and civic events each year. We hope that you will take some time to browse through the attached pages of our website and discover some more about our band.
Thundersley Brass Band will be making a trip
to Kettering at the end of the month to compete in the
prestigious 'All England Masters International' at 'The
Lighthouse Theatre' on Sunday 28th May. The chosen
test piece is Peter Graham's 'The Torchbearer' which is
already familiar to the band as the L&SC area test
piece from 2015 although the band will be taking nothing
for granted amongst what promises to be very tough competition.
