Restormel Concert Band was founded in 1979. The intention was to provide a platform for the many talented woodwind players in Cornwall that had no opportunity to play in any form of ensemble. Originally known as St Austell Concert Band the name was soon changed due to confusion with the already established St Austell Brass Band ... It is a true community band consisting of adults and students, amateur, semi-professional and professional musicians ... RCB plays 15 concerts per calendar year all over Cornwall and as well as aspiring to be the leading concert band musically in the South West it raises thousands of pounds for charity each year. The repetoire includes classical wind band music, selections from shows, film music as well as the latest easy listening pop.’

‘The County of Cornwall has produced many quality musicians and musical ensembles, and is home to brass musicians both active and retired that have performed, composed or conducted at the pinnacle of brass playing. On the 13th July 2012 "Roche Brass" was formed with a core group of experienced players, based in this geographically central location, with the intent of maintaining the tradition of brass banding and to encourage local youngsters to become involved in the movement. Youth bands are of the upmost importance when ensuring the future of brass banding. It follows then, that as part of the Roche Brass band organization it has already started a learner group and youth band, which has received strong and enthusiastic local support.’

St Dennis Band is extremely proud of its heritage with early records traced to the mid 19th Century, believed to have been formed in 1838 as part of the festivities in connection with the Coronation of Queen Victoria it has continued to function by voluntary contributions up to the present time ... The Band has experienced highs and lows during its existence and following a decline in the mid 1990’s showed the determination that has always been present, concentrating their efforts on Youth which paid dividends, progressing from a group of young inexperienced players to the mature Band of the present day. The Band has qualified for the National finals five times in the last decade rapidly moving up through the sections where they have now established themselves in the Championship Section.’
