The Sillars Windband is looking to increase its numbers and invite wind players to join.

The band would especially like more brass players, but any musical instrument is welcome.

The Sillars Windband is a small, friendly group that meets on Tuesday evenings at the United Reform Church on Ipswich Road, Norwich.

Members give about four concerts each year at churches and residential homes.

No examination grades are necessary and there are no auditions.

Formed in 2005, the band takes its name from Archie Sillars, founder of the Sillars Light Orchestra in 1926.

The band plays short pieces which are easy to listen to and often well-known.

They can be contacted on enquiries@sillarswindband.org or phone Robin on 01603 454491 or Jenny on 01508 538872.
