TOWCESTER STUDIO BAND
Exciting News for TSB!
Towcester Studio Band is very excited to announce that we will be forming a brand new development band for brass players of all ages who are Grade 1 or above in their playing ability.
Whether you are a new beginner player looking to progress your playing through ensemble work and expert guidance or if you are thinking about taking a brass instrument up again after a break but don't feel comfortable in joining a contesting brass band then this is the ideal opportunity for you.
On 23rd October, The Band is holding an open day to come along between 10am and 2pm to chat to committee members and hear some of the band so that we can tell you all about our vision and find out if you would like to be a part of this exciting new venture. This will take place at Bransons Lane, Towcester, NN12 6AX.

During these difficult times, TSB have been coming up with a variety of ways to keep our supporters both up-to-date and entertained.
Over the last few months, TSB have 'joined the band wagon' by taking on the Lockdown Performance Challenge. They are delighted to have completed 3 virtual performances!
