Welcome to the web site of the Band of Avon Fire and Rescue Service, a concert wind band based in Bath.   Our Director of Music is Alan Peacock.

We perform a very broad spectrum of music styles and genre, and are available throughout the year to perform concerts or provide music at engagements and events.  Our primary location is  Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas, but we have played as far away as Aix-en-Provence.

We welcome new players at any time of the year, either to join the concert band, or, if less experienced, our intermediate band ‘Brass Wind and Fire’.  If you are interested, or know of anyone who would like to join us, please contact us.  If you’d like to have the band play at an event you are organising, it’s the same email address – info@avonfireandrescueband.org

If you’re a musician looking for a Band to join in the Bristol, Bath & surrounding areas, welcome – you don’t have to be a firefighter – any musician can apply to join us!   We have bands to suit all musicians, from absolute beginners and returners to playing (for example, people who learned to play an instrument at school but have never played since) and accomplished players

The band rehearses weekly on Monday evenings at Lansdown, which is conveniently situated between Bristol and Bath.
