Cholsey Silver Band is based in the village of Cholsey which is 2 miles SW of
Wallingford in Oxfordshire. We are a non-competing band of a good 3rd/4th section
standard. We practise from 8 - 10pm each Tuesday evening in the Laurence Hall
Church Road, Cholsey. OX10 9PP.
Our current senior band membership is 35 drawn from an area including Oxford,
Chalgrove, Didcot, West Hagbourne, Blewbury, Tilehurst, Reading and Twyford as
well as Cholsey itself but new members are always welcome. We have a learners group
and junior band which meet at 7 - 7.45pm on Tuesday evenings during school
term time. Tuition, however is open to people of all ages and there is nearly always
an adult in the learners group.
The band has a full set of good quality instruments bought as a result of a successful
National Lottery application. In 1999 we purchased a new set of uniform jackets and
music stand banners. The jacket colours were dark green with black and gold trim.
However, in 2012 we purchased new uniform jackets and ties ready for our centenary in 2013.
