Newark Town Band Est. 1957

Newark Town’s very own brass band has over 50 years of rich musical history, providing quality entertainment in the field of brass music both within Newark and the surrounding area. The last few years for the band have been an incredibly exciting time as, having been rejuvenated by Peter Footitt following its decline during the nineties, Peter’s success has served as an excellent platform from which new Musical Director, Rupert Trippet can build.


The band’s repertoire includes a full spectrum of genres ranging from light popular music through film and operatic works to the more traditional brass band music of times gone by. With a mixture of performances from our many soloists through to full band ensembles Newark Town Band always delivers performances to be remembered.


The band ‘family’ includes people from all walks of life and with ages ranging from 13 to 75 years old. There are currently a few official vacancies available in the band, but we are always welcoming of both new young talent and experienced players wishing to join us.

The band practises every Wednesday evening between 7-9pm at the Bridge Community Centre, Lincoln Road, Newark, NG24 2DQ.  If you are interested in joining the band please contact the Band Secretary on: 07799 640935 or send an email to:
