Owner description: There are records of a Town Band in Appledore a far back as the 1880s and records in the band possession show that from the turn of the century this was a Brass Band. It existed until the 1920s when lack of support and players caused it to be disbanded. The current band is the continuation of a Silver Band formed by Appledore Boys Brigade in 1942. The Band had humble beginnings starting with just four boys from the Boys Brigade who were inspired after they attended a display given by the 88th London Company who were camping in the area.Today the band is stronger than ever with over 40 members, a healthy training band and large group of loyal supporters. It supports local events as well as raises money through-out the year for charities and to continue the work it does helping children to read and play brass instruments.During summer the band can be found on Appledore Quay every Monday evening entertaining the tourists and the highlight of the year is always The Last Night of the Proms Concert over the August Bank Holiday weekend. The band has an active following and you can find out more about the band, see its upcoming engagements on its website and Facebook pages.
