Forest of Dean Area Wind Band

Helping everyone in Gloucestershire - particularly children and young people - to learn, share and enjoy music-making...


SATURDAYS   10:00 -  12:00

The Forest of Dean Area Wind Band caters for all brass, woodwind and percussion players aged 7 and over.  Players of all ages standards are welcome - it doesn't matter if you only know a few notes or if you are playing at Grade 8 standard as we have a range of Wind Bands playing at varying levels from our Starter Band (ideal for those who only know a few notes, who have been part of a Whole Class music scheme or taken part in a GM First Access course) to our award-winning Area Wind Band which regularly participates in national events such as the National Festival of Music for Youth and the National Concert Band Festival.

Adults welcome!  if you are a parent, friend of a current member or a local resident and play an instrument then why not join us - our aim is to provide a local wind band for the Forest of Dean that meets the needs of the whole community.  GM also hire musical instruments  - visit our main website for more details.
