Kingsbury Episcopi Band

Notices from Thursday 20 June 2019

Vivary Park Concert

This coming Sunday 23rd June is the open-air concert in Vivary Park (Upper High St, Taunton TA1 3SX), commencing at 3pm. Please allow plenty of time to get there by 2.30pm for setting up. There is parking opposite, but please be aware that tier 1 closes at 5pm. (Anne was locked in last year!) Also, it may be a good idea to check whether there are any events taking place in Taunton that may affect volume of traffic.

Uniform Code

Please do ensure that you’ve read Anne’s email about our uniform code – it’s important that our image reflects our high standard of performance.


Valerie issued a handout informing members of the need to insure their own personal belongings (instruments etc), as the band’s own insurance does not cover members’ personal items.

CD Recording

Sunday 8th September (10am to 5pm) has been agreed for the additional recordings for our CD ie, Oregon and Spartacus, and potentially some other bits and pieces. Again it will take place in Barrington Village Hall. There will be a rehearsal on Tuesday 3rd September, in Langport in place of Thursday 5th, and an additional rehearsal in Barrington on Friday 6th. The band is not required to attend on Saturday 7th, which is when Mike and Dave will be setting up the equipment. Please put the above dates in your diaries.


“The band playing was exceptional this year, and many have commented on the really good mix of carols and popular music.

Once again, huge thanks for playing for us again.”

Email from the organiser of the Kingsbury Episcopi Methodist Church carol concert held on Sunday 15th December 2019

“Just a note to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you in the Band for the great event on Sunday. We thought that the Band was on absolutely ‘top form’ and excelled in all aspects of the music.” 

Email from the organiser of the Kingsbury Episcopi Methodist Church carol concert held on Sunday 16th Dec 2018

“I just wanted to officially thank you all for the wonderful performance you put on for our Street Fair. It isn’t official yet but I believe this was our best year ever for fund raising. Thank you for being a part of that. I say it every year and every year I mean it, when I say Drayton Street Fair wouldn’t be the same without you. It’s the music that lends the day its particular vibrance, I believe.I hope you all enjoyed yourself and that we’ll see you again next year.”
