(The L&SC area contest, Stevenage, March 2017)
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, early last month, were
privileged to perform their annual Christmas concert as
guests of 'Earls Hall Primary School' in Westcliff on
Friday 8th December. The concert was opened by the
school's year five and six pupils and then accompanied the
band in the second half with some joint favourites that
included 'Little Donkey' and a very lively 'Jingle
Bells'. The band played a selection of popular
festive numbers which also featured solos from Rhys Cave
(Away in a Manger) and the schools resident teacher, our
very own Mrs Helen Creak (Silent Night) to over a hundred
delighted members of the audience.
The band also had a very successful carolling season collecting a grand total of £1,143.36 from three sessions at Tesco Pitsea Basildon. Many thanks to all of you for your support. The band now look forward to some serious contesting with the critically important annual areas contest on Sunday 18th March. Further event dates for the year are in preparation....
