Originally the Watchet Royal British Legion Band, the West Somerset Brass Band was formed in 1952,
and this year we are celebrating our 70th anniversary.

We are a traditional amateur brass band with 30 regular players, but are always keen to
welcome new members to the band and we currently have vacancies in our cornet section.

Our main rehearsal & training band is on Friday evenings at the Methodist Church schoolroom, Harbour Road, Watchet, TA23 0AQ.

Please explore the site for more information on the band, where we will be performing and contact details.
