'In the Late 1960s a tide of contemporary American folk music was sweeping Britain and several clubs in Cornwall featured this material. However, in 1967 a small group of traditional singers, including Vic Legg and Lar Cann started meeting for weekly sessions in the Masons' Arms, Bodmin. They decided to start a club to raise funds for British folksingers to visit Cornwall. The first recorded club night of the Bodmin Traditional Folk Club, as it was then, was on 31st May 1968 in an upper room at The Barley Sheaf.'

Formed in 1927: 'Recent years have perhaps seen challenging times for the brass band movement, and Bodmin has had more than its fair share of struggles in concentrating the attentions of players. This downturn pales into insignificance, however, when news broke to the banding world of a raging fire that tore through the Band’s rehearsal rooms in December 2009. Arsonists completely destroyed the bandroom, including its entire set of instruments, percussion, uniforms and historic music library. Yet the tragedy of fire has in fact galvanised support from local bandsmen desperate to ensure that the town of Bodmin does not go without a band it can call its own for long. And so from the ashes of the fire and within earshot of the remains of its bandroom, Narissa Hall, 2010 saw Bodmin Town Band began the process of rebuilding a band for which the town will be proud for another 93 years to come!'

‘The Band aspires to greatness but with a strong conviction that banding should be a hobby to be thoroughly enjoyed. We always welcome new players, young and old ... All the top orchestras have former bandsmen in them, brass bands teach music to a high standard. Whatever your ambition, joining Lostwithiel Band can help make it happen. Its a fun, active and healthy hobby which will last for a life time. Don't forget that it has been shown that banding improves school exam success and is good for reading, mathematics and general confidence and competence. Thousands play, come and find out why.’
