'We are a non contesting brass band based in Sittingbourne ... In the early days of the band all the players worked at the Paper Mill and were given time off to attend rehearsals and play at concerts.

In every concert, we play a balanced programme containing varied music to suit everyone's tastes. Our repertoire contains traditional marches, and selections from popular musicals, but it also contains popular songs and some more unusual pieces as well - we provide a programme to entertain everyone!'

‘Keeping a beady eye on the traditional folk music scene of the British Isles.’ Founded 2008: Artists; Interviews; Record Reviews: ‘The music has to be rooted in the traditional music of the British Isles. So, some indication of "trad/arr" in the credits is a big plus. Singer-songwriter material is unlikely to get reviewed unless it also fulfils that requirement. Americana & Country also fall outside our remit. Despite our name, we do not discriminate based on the age of the artist.’

The Alton Organ Society was founded in 1967 and organize each year a series of monthly recitals, running from October to May. The 3 manuals and pedals 'Speechly' organ dates back to 1868 and at its opening 'must have been the largest in any southern Parish Church at the time'. The organ was thoroughly overhauled  in 1965 but with the overriding consideration that 'there should be no major alteration to the existing tonal characteristics - which makes this organ such a wonderful instrument popular with visiting distinguished national and international organists of repute'.
