West Somerset Brass Band have continued to stay in touch throughout the last year with online quizzes, bingo and virtual rehearsals. 


When the nation were out clapping for the NHS workers, we showed our appreciation by our members taking to their doorsteps and all playing the same piece of music. Renditions of Over The Rainbow, What a Wonderful World, Land of Hope & Glory on St. Georges day, You’ll Never Walk Alone to celebrate Colonel Tom Moore’s 100th birthday and White Cliffs of Dover & We’ll Meet Again to commemorate VE Day could heard around Watchet, where we are based, and across West Somerset.


Although we are still unable to all meet up at once, we have been having virtual rehearsals and meeting in groups of 6 to ensure that we are still making music together.
