'Has been in existence for over 100 years ... Provides musical entertainment to the public, organisations and for civic occasions. The Band prides itself on its commitment to education and has a junior section where young people under the age of 18yrs can be given tuition in the techniques of playing a brass instrument and be taught to read music. The senior band (from age 11yrs) has a long tradition of contesting which raises the standard of playing both for the band as a whole and for individual players.'

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!'

'At the turn of the century, Ada and Charlotte Phipps, daughters of the Towcester brewery owner, built and equipped "The Studio", a club where young men could pursue art, woodcarving, sport and other activities. In 1910 Charlotte acquired a set of brass instruments and thus Towcester Studio Band  was born ... We are a band of young and experienced brass players with our own band hall and facilities.'
