Exciting news – we’ve now completed the recording of a few extra pieces of music for our CD and we can’t wait to hear the final result. We’re planning to have it ready for sale by Christmas, and details of how to order will be posted nearer the time.
We have a bit of a break now until our next engagement on Sunday 10th November when we’ll be participating in the Somerton Remembrance Parade, marching off from Somerton Fire Station at 9.30am. In the meantime, we’ll be working hard on our new programme of music for the upcoming season.

Kingsbury Episcopi Band has gained recognition from HMRC that it is now a charity for tax purposes.
This allows us to continue our great work for the community with renewed vigour and to seek the funding to enhance the services offered to musicians, event organisers and, of course, the public.
The Charity’s objects are:
- To advance the education of those of all ages and ability wishing to develop their musicianship of woodwind, brass or percussion instruments by providing instruments, practice facilities, tuition and opportunities to perform in public concerts.
- To promote the appreciation and understanding of wind band music for the public benefit and stimulate interest in the art of wind band playing through presentation of public performances.
- To further such charitable purposes as the trustees think fit from time to time, in particular, but not limited to, the support of charities in the South Somerset and surrounding areas by helping raise funds or by the provision of grants.
