This will be MD Darrell Scholes’ first Spring Concert with Oxted, having joined the band in May 2015. He brings a wealth of brass band experience and after a busy summer of fetes, bandstands and local events, the band is building on his first concert last Autumn when they featured soloists from within their own ranks. The programme will include traditional brass band items, music from the classics and from popular shows and musicals – something for everyone!

Tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for children,
Available from 07584 246501 or on the door.

We look forward to seeing you in April for what promises to be another evening of sparkling brass fare from Oxted Band and our special guest soloist.

Prior to the Spring Concert, the band will be making their annual appearance in the garden of co-chairman of West Ham FC, David Gold, on Sunday 10th April. Mr Gold, who lives in Caterham, opens his garden every year in aid of the National Garden Scheme charity and St Catherine’s Hospice.
