Bodmin Town Band

Bodmin Town Band


Bodmin Town Band was formed in 1927. Contest successes saw the Band develop quickly, these achievements were rewarded by being promoted to the Championship Section in 1959, where we remained for 50 years. We always recognise the need to support local Contests and Associations, having won numerous prizes at the West of England Bandsmen’s Festival and have also held the Cornish Champions title on a number of occasions. We are also very proud of our amazing record at the South West Brass Band Association Championships, with over twenty victories in the Championship Section. We are conducted by the very talented Mr John Maines, his vast experience has enabled the band to grow in confidence and together we look forward to continuing the recent successes of the coming years together. 2017 saw us have a very successful contesting year with 4th place at the Butlin’s Mineworkers Contest in Skegness. 1st place and Champions at the WEBBA Regional Contest 2nd Section. West of England Bandsman Festival (Bugle) 1st Section: 4th place in Test piece & 2nd place in the March testpiece. National Brass Band Championships Finals of GB we were placed 9th place in 2nd Section. In 2018 we were promoted to the 1st Section and winning the West of England Bandsman Festival 1st Section and successfully entering the Open Section at the SWBBA Annual contest. 2019 was a year of further progress with the band visiting the Whit Friday contest and qualifying for the Finals of the National Brass Band Championships of GB in the 1st Section. We will be continuing to work hard to build the standard and name of Bodmin Town Band for the future. We hope you enjoy our performance today, please visit our social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
We are proud of the youth deveoplment within BTB. We have a Training Band that rehearse every Monday evening at the Band Club and a confident Youth Band that enjoys performing concerts and also competing on the contest stage.
